I’m Shy

That I admitted it shocks me even now.
In what ways does that affect me?
It all gets jumbled up when I try
to articulate what’s on my mind.
Just what does that imply for you?
Can you imagine not finding out?
Whenever I walk, my shoulders slouch,
wondering whether I am sexually desirable.
The truth is, I’m terrified.
What exactly does this imply for you?
Timidity disappears on a waterbed.
