"Perspective of a shy girl"

Shy. T-shirt, shorts, tights
sun, bright eyes, think.
Deep in thought?
Slightly. Trying, anyway.
But something's in the way.
Smile?
Words, talk, laugh, simple.
Chit-chat, handshake, embrace...
Smiling at strangers takes time.
First impressions are the worst
if you're shy.



I took inspiration from some poems I read in Literature today, such as Carol Ann Duffy. Impersonal fragments for some reason make just a good a poem as an elaborate sonnet, I find.

I'm still the overly emotive sonnet girl! :')
