#51 of 365 – “rsvp”

“rsvp”

 

I am an introvert

in desperate

secret need

of human contact,

 

keeping at arm’s length

the people

I’m most eager

to touch,

 

waiting silently,

listening

for lost echoes

of friends,

 

watching

from the shadows

for my inhibitions

to end.

 

perhaps

I should finally RSVP

to my life,

and actually attend.
