I didn't notice you were there!
            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've been watching a lot of YouTube videos about introversion in the past week or so and it's made me feel so relieved! I don't feel like 'the odd one out' any more, I understand why I do the things I do and why extroverts are always pushing me to talk and socialise more. It's hard work doing both and it's good to know it's okay to live in my own head and not have the drive to visit people all the time! Phew... lol  Giggle 

Anyway, this isn't a poem or prose but more my thoughts on paper in a poem-like structure.

If you can relate to this or you want to share your thoughts (critique or not), don't be afraid to post! :D (Big Grin)  La la la la

Edit: 24/02 -- I've fixed up a couple of lines: the first N and the V sentence, and removed the italics. The V sentence had really been bugging me, so I've reworked it and made it sound better :D

G'day fellow Introvert. :D I relate to this [except for, ironically, the listening part, which I struggle with], although in my case, Introversion is almost crippling. :o (Eek)

It's always good to know that you're not alone, and that being internally driven doesn't make you weird, or antisocial. :) (Smile) And I like how you've written this. It works well as a poem. :D

Thank you :love: :+fave:

Yeah, the response I've gotten from this has made me feel not to isolated as an introvert. It's comforting :)

I like it... After reading this and read the comments makes me somewhat... warm in heart.

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)!:hug:2 rvmp

"Reading and writing and my love for these don't make me boring.

Love this line just because I understand it the most personally :)

"No set of walls has felt like a prison.
            I don't need to leave the house, or my chair, to have fun."
Just because you go from vague to specific here, would it possibly fit better to say "No this set of walls hasn't felt like a prison." or "No these walls haven't felt like a prison." Just because (I believe) your talking about your homes walls specifically not just any walls, although I could be wrong, its just a thought :)

Yes, I understand what you mean and I've been pondering your advice all afternoon. It does make sense to have the line more personal like the others. I'll ponder it some more and look at making an amendment. The second line for V has been bugging me too!

Thanks! :-D
