she has rainy brown eyes and a muddy smilesummer sighs satisfied and gathers her scattered
self in a worn leather suitcase,
her constant cloudless mood

for next year
and the year after that
they all lament at her leave

autumn's peevish arrival
(she was too shy to storm in as winter always did)
but she tries so hard to redress for
the chill of her heart,

love letters to introvertsi.
To the boy who prefers spending Friday nights at home:

or plug in your computer,
or listen to music,
or just maybe stare that the night sky from your bedroom window-
(please) remember what everyone else seems to forget;
that being alone does not always equal lonely--
and that sometimes no company is the best company there is.
To the girl who does not speak up in class:
I was once you.
You are not deficient, I promise, despite everyone telling you otherwise.
You might be the only one who will ever know the universes
tucked inside your head,
because they are beautiful secrets you cannot bring yourself to share,
for fear that they might be vandalized.

"Are you sure, man? I mean... You don't really... Look yourself."
"I'm fine." It started to leap and snap at his fingers. I watched it for a moment until it latched on, clamping down on his hand.
I winced. "I know there's something eating you, just tell me bro- it'll be alright."
Barry looked at me like I had offended him; could he not feel the thing working its way up his arm, swallowing him whole? "Kyle, I'm fine, there's nothing wrong with me."
