wandering lost and cold
I came upon a celler door
I broke the lock
feeling no shame

there, shelves stocked with food
a cot in the corner
and a colorful blanket

were they expecting me?

full bellied
wrapped in warmth
I laid down
and wept at my shameless ways

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage:

into the capitalization thing, I really liked this one. I wouldn't know how to change one line, without ruining the poem as a whole. Great work! ~ Gee

Honest critique and comments shouldn't hurt.
It's why we are here, to get better at our craft.

capitalization thing? is that a feduciary question , or one of writing form? Just wondering!

Anyway, either way, thank you for your gracious remarks and your time. much appreciated.
