"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks

I wish I could be
Hiding under a blanket-

My cheeks start to burn

This is amazing. It's fascinating how, because you've made your poem so short, the rest is automatically filled in by our own awkward memories. Simple and pretty, without excess embellishment, so we can embellish ourselves. Eek, I'm cringing now. I just remembered my own awkwardness. I loved the poem, though. Five stars! :)
