    Daniel- Hello!!

    This is wonderful, the feeling of being alone on a crowded city bus comes to mind and this poem takes my breath away!

    You captured an intimacy, even in meeting a stranger (I assumed this at least), and the ways we may become vulnerable to one another. How moments can be extraordinary, and if we're paying attention, reveal the humanity in each other. This felt like a scene from a movie where two characters linger, and share a moment or look that humbles them, or makes them feel seen/heard. The last four lines were so perfect that it made me shiver, because of the double meaning of "masked", literal and also emotionally, what we hide behind and never expose to others.

    Fantastic, Daniel!

      Thank you for your comment! I hope the two people in this were socially distanced :)

    Well done, Daniel. Is there a possible typo in 'as world'? I believe a 'the' would fit very snugly indeed between that lovely use of alliteration! :)

    All the best as ever, good man.
