1. My mom always complains
     That our house has a deafening sound to it.
I’m not sure if it’s the sound of the T.V that’s always on
Or, my brother jumping on the walls
That Gets to her.

2. I was never good at speaking up.

With siblings cooler or smarter than I am,
It’s common place to hear things
Like buff up and shut up.

3. My friends say I talk too loud.
I disagree.

4. At the last house party I attended someone
Claimed he could drink 6 bottles
And not feel a thing.

He threw up his pride,
I wish I could do the same.

5. I don’t know what kind of drunk I am.
I don’t like alcohol.

Probably a sad one.

6. At parties I pretend to check my phone
As I wander room to room
Looking for something.
I’m not quite sure what I’m looking for,

I think I’m suppose find another person there
But

2. I was never good at speaking up.

7. I wrote a condolence message on Facebook
For a guy I barely knew.

Probably for attention.

8. I didn’t go to the memorial on Saturday.

I didn’t know anyone going.

9. I didn’t have many friends in high school

I had my gang
But I stopped talking to them after graduation.

I don’t know what they’re up to anymore.

2. I was never good at speaking up.

11. People use to think I was mute.

I only learned to speak when I was

12. I’ve never started a conversation alone.

13. I use to get picked on in kindergarten
But never did anything about it because

14. My mom says our house has a deafening sound to it.

I think,
It’s my entire vocabulary skydiving off my tongue
That gets to her.
Haven't written a spoken word piece in a while, so here. Never seen any piece about being an introvert...so here.

I made a quick recording of it as well, it could be downloaded here for FREEtinyurl.com/oc5fhyo

...Or if you're feeling nice you could support me by purchasing this piece of 20 points instead through premium content

As i imagined the reading of it gave it so much more then the written version. I love this. as "xxEmi-AnGeL-chanxx" said, it does have that momentum to it, as you've portrayed in your reading, and then it stops abruptly and then falls. Although i pick up spelling errors here and there all in all its a great poem.

I just moved last year, so it's taken me awhile to find some friends. Especially since I'm fairly shy in real life and most of my friends are online. XD We're all here for you!

Haha. I'm not nearly as bad as I use to be.

I have someone to thank for that, though I haven't seen them in over a year now.

I do. We've had brief conversations online since then, but that's about it.

She's pretty much been avoiding me. lol I don't really blame her though, it'd be really awkward. I think she still feels bad for stuff that happened.
