Chiefly I evade the public sphere  

Where everyone else is a politician 

And grandiose is the dish of the day 

Practicing their protracted reality  

Yet I afford myself a tiny window 

To peek out and secretly whisper  

Purge ideas, emotions, and dreams 

Like a child might from a bedroom  

Feeling safer from feeling out of place  

It is most peculiar- feeling the warmth  

Radiate from your body, yet lacking  

That warmth from someone you admire  

If only people, we love wholeheartedly  

Were forced to be warm… and giving
