my cheeks light on fire often. roses. roses on fire. warm summer winds. it's lovely.
feel it in your face too and then read on

when it happens I've tried to pinpoint it:

when i realize i am thinking about ***
when i sing the wrong note in choir
when i try on a form fitting outfit
when my friends are all laughing at once
when i imagine strangers ****
when i see first dates happening
when the teacher calls on me
whenever i talk
whenever i am seen
when i catch eyes with anyone
when i'm late to class
when anyone compliments me
when the champagne lid pops off

so yeah i'm extremely shy and have a passion for living quietly, and whenever i step into the light it feels quite intense
It makes dating hard. Heh.
