an introvert's public shelter

Intimacy found away from home.

My bench's eloquent silences and vows

That look from a stranger I try to avoid

That same look that makes me feel safe

Looked after

noticed.

Steps collide

places change

lives are saved

chances are lost.

Doubts disappear if you keep moving

Through this lonely stroll that went on for some time, I felt the existence of this sunny sweet place to go back to,

This place out of space, hidden in the now.. Any now.

In this place I found a smile that might suit me

Those are testimonials of the existance of the public shelter of an introvert.
