I got lost in my own world again.
No set of walls will feel like a prison.
I don't need to leave the house, or my chair, to have fun.
Time spent with family and friends means a lot to me.
But I don't do it just because.
Reading and writing and my love for these don't make me boring.
Living in my own mind comes naturally to me, like breathing.
Of course I don't know what to talk about.
Unless it's deep, meaningful and interesting, I won't say much.
Very good at listening?
I love learning new things and being there for you.
Escape plan: exits, quiet and an excuse.
Over-stimulation is the pits!
Real friends are hard to come by.
If I consider you a friend, it's a big deal!
Try coming out of my shell?
This is who I am.
...I am terrified of public speaking and being around too many people is overwhelming. So!! I prefer to be the one behind the scenes, getting what needs to be done, done haha
Great poem by the way
Omg yes! I dislike speaking in front of groups bigger than five or so and it's even worse when I don't know them.
Have you ever heard of the term Ambivert? That's when you have traits of both an extrovert and an introvert. Some tests I've done say I'm right in the middle. Others say I'm an introvert.
It's always good to know that you're not alone, and that being internally driven doesn't make you weird, or antisocial. And I like how you've written this. It works well as a poem.
Yeah, the response I've gotten from this has made me feel not to isolated as an introvert. It's comforting
It's interesting to see that we the introverts in outer world could all gather up and have a chat in this site. This way, we find so many people just like ourself... It surely is nice, to know you're not alone.
Salute for the poem(thought)!

This is so true for me
THIS DEFINITELY SUMS UP MY WHOLE LIFE. I've had parents and other people in my life pushing me to open up and talk more, but I honestly find it harder 'cause I tend to daydream all the time, and, you know, it just becomes a habit. Or at least something that seems perfectly normal (to me) in my everyday routine.
