I’ve been distancing my entire life.
Shy very young.
More of a choice later.
Don’t get too close.
Safer for me over here.
Physical distancing now forced upon me.
Connections are awkward.
Everyone sheltered away protecting themselves.
Emotional protection shouldn’t make you heartless.
The heart is all you have to share.
While locked away, don’t throw away the key.
