Extroversion and All That Jazz

Being an extrovert

is not always loud parties,

glitter, and confetti, and

certainly not a

lemon yellow butterfly

flitting from flower to flower.

 

Being an extrovert

is not always fun and games

and constant notifications, and

certainly not

piling invitations and more Sunday brunches

than you can manage.

 

Give me some time

and I’ll take you

to the Dark Side of being

an extrovert,

of being the what they call

“life of the party”. 

 

Being an extrovert

is often trusting too easy,

like you’ve known these people

for 5 years than the mere 5 minutes,

and you don’t know if

they could kill you any second now.

 

Being an extrovert

is spilling all your trauma and secrets

like you never learned when to stop,

and only to have

them used against you

in the court of social obligations.

 

Being an extrovert

is not always about

breaking the ice but sometimes,

being broken and numb inside                                                      tumblr_mi4u2p6E8d1rj3e21o1_500

because your little body

couldn’t contain all that zeal.
