The Dilemma of the Introvert

Please leave me alone
I need some space
I just want to be alone
There’s nothing more I can face

I don’t want to listen
I don’t want to talk
I don’t want to think of my expressions
That people watch like a hawk

Just leave me be
Leave me in peace
Leave me in silence
With a moment to breathe

There’s too much activity
Too much emotion
Like I’m stuck in captivity
Or drowning in an ocean

I just need a moment
Please understand
You’re not my opponent
It’s not you I can’t stand

Just one hour, maybe two
And I’ll be ready to hang out with you
I need to recharge
I need to step back
Because my head is all out of whack.

So, give me some time
I hope you don’t mind
I need a chance to sort this tension
Then you can have my full attention

One thought on “The Dilemma of the Introvert

  1. That is really good. Many people do not understand an introverts feelings and thoughts. Actually many people make the wrong assumptions on all types of people because they do not understand. You have such a gift to be able to express it in words.
