Yes, I’m an introvert
No, I’m not shy, I’m not stuck up.
No, I’m not antisocial. I’m just listening.
I’m just observing I can’t stand small talk.
But I’ll talk about life for hours.
I’d rather be home with a close friend
or two than among a crowd of acquaintances.
Don’t scold me in public.
Don’t embarrass me in public.
Respect that I am reserved.
And if I open myself up to you,
know that means
you’re very special to me.
