“Slinks into the Shadows”

I walk into a cafe to meet a few pals from middle school.
We start to bond and then I realize that I am
third-wheeling within the first ten minutes.
I grab my earphones and plug them in to shut them out, cause I can’t
walk away.
The music gets me going and I’m on a high; allowing myself to slink
into the shadows without anyone noticing.
