I’m an introvert

“Please say those words again”, my heart begged
“Stop! Don’t you dare!” warned my brain
I want to say, “Fuck this world, I do too!”
But I keep my mouth shut
Because I’m an introvert

I watch those oh-so-perfect Instagram and FB posts
Heck! Why ain’t my life like that?
But I silently envy them
Because I’m an introvert

They said: Say no. I said No
They said: Say yes. I said Yes (which I shouldn’t)
But I live like a puppet
Because I’m an introvert

I’m very good in masking my pain
I hide the crevices well
But I won’t utter: WTH! It hurts
Because I’m an introvert

Each heart carries a story and feet walk on a journey
Some stories do not end well,
The feet never reach the destination
But I ignore them all
Because I’m an introvert

Even you say those words all over again
I want to say: "Yes! I really love you too"
But I would never confess
Because I’m an introvert

I am introvert too and there is something creative about our lot. Brilliant poetry that taps expression within.

I know! Our lot has so much to share.
