Sure? Yes, because I am an introvert and when I have the chance of a new relationship I recede, afraid of rejection because fear of intimacy is also fear of abandonment. When your whole life is a list of unrequited loves that is what happens. And you don’t have a new girlfriend, Steve? No, not now. I was dating Nina but she wasn’t really interested in me. However, I hope one day I will find my love. Well, then I wish you good luck and all the best. Thank you, that is very kind. It is good to talk with someone who listens to you. As you see I am afraid of everything, also of proximity with others even if I simply want friendship. And who are you, by the way? Certainly not somebody you will start a love relationship with. Yes, I know that but who are you? Well, I am…
I am a Friday, not a Monday,
a gay sparrow of hips quite narrow.
A sun or a moon? Well, see you soon.
I am what I am, do as I please.
Shall I try to make you feel at ease?
My friend, I will try to do my best
and hope you will take care of the rest.
‘Tis your sole responsibility,
I guess you have that ability.
Knock on my door and don’t ask for more,
Open your heart and let me be part.
If you do so, that’ll be the start.
Sorry, I still don’t know who you are. Perhaps my faithful companion?
