Secrets of an Introvert explores the thoughts of someone who does not find it easy to express their feelings out loud, through poetry. Take a journey through an introvert's mind and maybe you'll understand them a little better, or even sympathise with them if you are also a fellow introvert.

The Introvert

Always the quiet one
Incessantly a home-bird
Liking what I know
Knowing what I like
It's so clear to see
I'm just an introvert
An introvert, that's me


Burying my head in a book
Getting lost in a film
Keeping to myself
It's easier that way
Hoping everyone will see
I'm just an introvert
An introvert, that's me


Weekends and nights
Sitting in my room
Listening to music
Daydreaming of things that'll never be
I'm just an introvert
An introvert, that's me


Never antisocial
Don't get misconstrued
Only lacking the skill to interact
Except with a select few
Why can't you see?
I'm just an introvert
An introvert, that's me


Going out is such an effort
Only managing a few short hours
Needing time to wind down after
Using every ounce of energy to socialise
So remember it's not to be mean
I'm just an introvert
An introvert, that's me


Forever feeling alone
Living in a fantasy world
Where anything is possible
But then reality hits again
And I lose all belief
I'm just an introvert
An introvert, that's me


Watching everyone else get married
Having children of their own
Wondering when it will happen
If that is even in store
Will it ever be?
I'm just an introvert
An introvert, that's me


Failing to talk to new people
Avoiding conversation where possible
Never picking up the phone
Preferring to type than speak
It's not as rude as it seems
I'm just an introvert
An introvert, that's me


Holding things in
Hiding feelings so well
Rarely speaking my mind
When it's so hard to be heard
Out of place I often feel
I'm just an introvert
An introvert, that's me


Plucking up the courage to speak
Getting ignored; interrupted
Even talked over
No one listens or cares
At least that's how it seems
I'm just an introvert
An introvert, that's me


So, yes I may be quiet
And I may not say a lot
But that doesn't mean I don't listen
Say I'm unkind, you cannot
I'll speak my mind when I'm ready
When I have something important to say
But when I feel left out
I'm unlikely to continue to play
So forgive me if I don't seem happy
You have to understand that's not the case
I'm simply surveying my surroundings
Waiting for my place
To feel brave enough to open my mouth
And let the words tumble out
Make sure you listen when that time comes
Because it's not very often I speak without doubt
Of being ignored and interrupted
Spoken over or even not cared about
Give me patience, understanding and time
And I'll become a good friend you'll see
For, I'm just an awkward introvert
An introvert


That. Is. Me
