love letters to introverts
i.
To the boy who prefers spending Friday nights at home:
the world does not understand how beautiful silence sounds
sometimes. 
As you crack open that book you've been waiting to read,
  or plug in your computer,
    or listen to music,
      or, 
         or, 
            or, 
or maybe just stare at the night sky from your bedroom window-
(please) remember what everyone else seems to forget;
that being alone does not always equal lonely--
and that sometimes no company is the best company there is. 
ii.
To the girl who does not speak up in class: 
I was once you. 
You are not deficient, I promise, despite everyone telling you otherwise. 
You might be the only one who will ever know the universes 
tucked inside your head, 
because they are beautiful secrets you cannot bring yourself to share,
for fear that they might be vandalized. 
When you speak,

Everyone's trying
to get out of
the shadow
of their parents-
I'm here trying
to get out of
the shadow
of myself.

Things that this introvert...
I wish you knew,
When i'm smiling i often cry inside,
I wish you knew,
The indifference i show is just a way to hide,
I wish you knew,
I help you pack but scream for you to stay,
I wish you knew,
I wanted you every time i pulled away,
I wish you knew,
I lock the door but hope you'll find the key,
I wish you knew,
I hide away but hope that you'll find me,
I wish you knew,
I love the eyes you think i never meet,
I wish you knew,
I stare at you back as you walk off down the street,
I wish you knew,
I long to break this silence, if only i knew how,
I wish you knew,
If i could find the strength i'd let you in right now,
I wish you knew,
I need you every time i push you away,
I wish you knew,
How to read from my mind, these words i'll never say.

About that Unpopular girl
Taciturn
She becomes the omniscient narrator for the classroom
from the desk in the back of the class [and next to the window]
Her long black hair is combed
Her neatness being revealing how self-conscious she really is
She carries no scent
not of filth or of offensive odor
not of dove bodywash or perfume
not even of the mark of eve
When I capture your fleeting glance
I see the life in your eyes
the millions of explosions
behind your irises that tell me
You are alive.
A tiny glimpse past the corporal--past the dark circles of stress--past all things average about you
but you look away... you say "g-g-gomenasai"
Gomenasai for looking at me
Gomenasai for meeting me
Gomenasai for wanting to be with me
and I young and ignorant will say goodbye [to you and your beauty] and return to my life
I will never hear you again.

dimensions
i am a realist who believes in freedom,
a feminist who reads romance,
an artist with a knack for calculus.
i am a historian who loves folklore,
a girl who cannot cook,
an athlete who dislikes the outdoors.
i am a writer who makes grammatical errors,
an introvert with unshared passions,
a dreamer with my feet on the ground.
and yes,
i am all of these things—
because i am three-dimensional,
and the surface of a lake
doesn't always reveal everything below.

Literature
Introvert
They say I won't live as long,
Because I can't connect.
Maybe they're killing me now,
these feelings I can't dissect.
Maybe it is true,
But I would much rather live a short life,
Than a long one with you.
People tell me I think too much.
It must be relative,
Because it seems obvious to me,
That they don't think enough.
I'll live in solitude,
Or something near it,
Living a happier life,
Than you would see fit.

The Process of Becoming a Wallflower
i.
begin to wean yourself off of
responses
                                                               and social stimulation
until the frame of your social structure
becomes akin to
hummingbird bones.
ii.
your composure will stretch thin
across your cheeks
and the shadows sleeping
between your gaunt cheekbones
will begin to look like bruises—
rousing piteous looks from
acquaintances,
for all the wrong reasons.
iii.
allow said
hollow skeleton
to be picked up
                                                               from dusty corners of libraries
by vultures
who claim they knew you.
they will frame
and shape it
into a grotesque arrangement
of silk flowers.

Introversion
..I am..
Introverted
nothing absurd, or obscure,
silent and distant sure,
but never a trace in the blur..
Thriving in depths of the mind
...unconfined...
Energized by the comfort
that only silence finds..
Not "shy" or antisocial,
lonesome or woeful..
In tune with my emotions,
I don't lack sociality,
nor live in depravity..
Devotion that never deviates,
an unquestioning Zen state,
that alone I satiate..
Recharging in my quiet place,
to gain strength for the next
...Face to Face...
Truly, there are not words
for just how much that takes..
Some call me strange,
still I pick my battles,
the way some pick their stage..
Life is a journey, not a game
and at the end of the day
we all get there in our own way
...So please...
Don't mistake my absent nature,
for pain, or disdain
...I'm not insane...
Introversion is simply who I am

Birds
Around and around we go,
circular pattern holds.
Why don't you let go?
Or one day you'll be on your own.
Yeah, one day you'll be all alone.
You're holding on too tightly.
Please just learn to leave me be.
No, don't trap me.
'Cause if I'm not here willingly,
it will only guarantee
that one day you'll be on your own.
Yeah, one day you'll be all alone.

[I dare you to touch her and not get burnt]
i. In winter, I see her seethe under her breath:
flames of condensation flicker as broken words
are exhaled from parted lips,
smouldering slightly with roaring passion
that could scare melt the frost away.  
ii. She won't meet my eyes.
Her expression corrupt by anger,
features concealed by depression's hands;
the cracks between fingers let her light seep through -
onwards and upwards - her gaze goes astray
and I say, let me see you, as you are.
yet she'll still shy away
from her true self (living a lie),
loathing the way she's breathing,
loathing the way she's dying more
with each day that passes by,
[she speaks, sometimes, of fights
that she has been in: scraped
fingernails across her face and fists
forcing unconsciousness to flash in front of her eyes].
iii. Insomnia has its strange ways;
invading her dreams and pretending to be real -
when really she dreams of being conscious
when really - she isn't.
It's cruel to give false hope, she says,
and I

The Impossible Door
Confidence is key, they say
But I don't even have the lock.
This impossible door won't budge an inch
And I can hear him on the other side.
I knocked on it softly,
But God, I wanted to break it down.
I clawed at it, threw punches, until my hands can't feel themselves
I did my best, really, for the only visitor I invited in.
There must be some way, I thought
So I unhinged the sides and it opened
in a very awkward way.
He stood there expectantly,
my visitor looked bored.
Apparently the wait was too long.
I must've scared him trying, loudly pounding on the door.
The door that I loved, the door that kept me safe all these years,
Loved too much I didn't even imagine ever opening it.
So I didn't try.
A door I didn't want gone, until he came along.
Funny, I don't even blame him for not coming in.
After all, how hard was it to open a damned door?
He'll never know.
So I hid my bloodied hands, smiled and bid him goodbye.

I stand before the constellations
My shaking soul vulnerable to the world

Hidden
You may hide if you need
But you can't live hiding
So you must come out
Just sometimes
To people you trust
They won't judge you
So don't be afraid

Introverted
Is it a mortal sin to live in my cold pale skin?
Sometimes, I wish my personality was converted.
I am happy I have friends and my close kin.
My pain haunts me day by day; I am introverted.
I want to bury myself underground, lose the fear
of being laughed at and ridiculed all the time.
Stressful anguish to me lasts a light year;
could I just for this moment quickly sublime?
To survive, I need my opposite! To stay alive!
My quiet strength combined with living force,
what a great combination and solid drive!
Baby, could you be that smitten source?
Please, do not leave me deserted.
~Petra
