It started at a party

Though I'd known you for years.

We actually talked.

You got me a blanket

When I started to shiver

And we sat together.

On a freezing front porch,

on Halloween night.

Surrounded by mutual friends

It was perfect.

We sat together

In our own little world

In the form of a blanket

That we shared.

We shared a drink.

We shared a conversation.

We shared a gaze

That no one around us noticed.

You hugged me before you left.

And I hugged you
