She is very sensitive, cautious, and shy about showing others her feelings. Though she may love and care for someone a great deal, Adrienne Rich rarely expresses her feelings openly and freely. Very often Rich's love for someone is expressed by her wish to help her, do something tangible to benefit her or serve her in some way.
It is also difficult for her to receive warmth, affection or appreciation, for she often feels that she does not really deserve it or that "they do not really mean it". Rich may therefore come across as rather cool and aloof - much more so than she feels.
