Candy Feels
From Our Readers: When an Introvert Falls in Love
I'm fine with just looking from behind these volumes of mess.
ART Clare Magno

She wakes up in the morning and gets dressed in her favorite sweater
She likes to wear black to match her silent endeavor
She doesn't like attention so she never makes loud changes
She's content with herself and all her subtle strangeness

The library makes her heart feel giddy
She buries her nose in books as she smiles looking silly
But underneath the bashfulness hides a girl who wants to see
The love that she reads in stories become reality

She knows there are real princes but they were made for their own kind
She knows there aren't vampires and werewolves battling for mankind
She's determined to call every John Green book a bluff
But a part of her wishes she'd find an Augustus soon enough  

In the middle of daydreaming she gets distracted by a person
Who sits in front of her and catches her attention
You see she likes to be alone in her little sanctuary
She likes having limitations and setting her own boundary 

But this person didn't mind her staring blankly back at him
He even gestured a wave and said, "Hi, my name is Tim"
She stood up fast and scurried at the back of a wooden shelf
Her heart beating so loud she couldn't even hear herself  

She didn't know what to do, what to feel, what to say
She didn't have a love life, well at least not until today
Because Tim may not be a prince, a werewolf, or a vampire
But he sure made her blood rush through her veins like wildfire

So she tries to push her heart back right into its place
Like a book on the top shelf ready to fall flat on her face
"Stay there, don't fall!" as she holds her left chest
"I'm fine with just looking from behind these volumes of mess"
