INTROVERT

loner

Third rate hopes, secondhand dreams,
Living life in a fishbowl,
Looking out through the curtained windows,
My imagination swallows me whole.

Flashes of colour drift past my eyes,
Blurs of perfection racing outside,
‘Let me out’ something inside me cries,
But yet in my cocoon I stay, I hide,
Afraid of what I might lose out on,
Yet more afraid of the outcome of a risk.

Feeling little more than a pawn,
Yet I don’t want it to change…
My mind is a prison, yet I am a willing captive,
So lonely inside, so scary outside,
What do I decide?

    Trust me the best place to let in your poem in depth is to sit away from the crowd a silent place and thats when u get an answer on what to decide. Beautifully written.

    Beautiful lines. I love being an introvert. Wouldn’t want it any other way.

    Being an introvert is really powerful. I’m happy that I can spend the entire day without having the need to utter a word. If you think about it, that’s a blessing in disguise

    One introvert to another – I know hope it feels! Love the feeling conveyed by this poem. “My mind is a prison, yet I am a willing captive,
    So lonely inside, so scary outside,
    What do I decide?”

    This is me alright! How did you know?
