Introvert wings

Extrovert eyes express cimmerian connotations, hidden within silent chambers of an introvert mind. Thoughts twist and turn, but disguise frustrations, as a melancholic heart struggles to remain kind. Drained by energies from those who fail to understand, soul seeks solitude to energise back into life, Searching for a comfort zone in the promised land, before insanity cuts deeper than a poisoned knife. Confined to dogmatic chains results in confusion, as faith becomes an enemy within critical cultures. Torn between paradise and social seclusion, soul seeks solitude from vociferous vultures. Complicated compromises mean hearts will be broken, yet introvert wings yearn to be free so they can soar. Life is a balance of words voiced and left unspoken, if only it was as simple as walking through that door. The Silent One Simple Musings 18 July 2018

    This is raw and painful to read ... that is why it's good... and will do more to help introverts than pages of useless pretty words spoken to mask the truth...instead of lifting off the bandage and taking a good look at the scab concealed with platitudes and niceties. Emile.

    "introvert wings yearn to be free so they can soar" For some reason this thought truly tugs at my heart. In life, not all moments are simple. Everyone is different. The wind will open up their wings, when the time is right. They will soar. ~ Brandy

    Love your poem of two worlds within one body. How the words ring out, the complexity of a war of two opposing entities.

    Very true to life. Flowing lines to such a well-written poem.

    Some people repress their feelings due to an austere religious regime or home rule. but they dont seek another way to embody their desire so they fall seek or become self-centered loosing any link with real life. there must be a way of virtual or moderate refuge to hold them.

    Hi Silent One, brilliant write. You weave your words so well. All The Best.

    A talented poem written for a talented friend Si. One must have to go 'inwards to go outwards' to step out of the chains of the comfort zone, that only exists in one's own mind. Fear of rejection from negative individuals and one's own hesitation because of the time old 'what will people say' Thoroughly enjoyed your write, very meaningful and I do hope your friend really appreciates it. and a FAVE from me....Maria ~ hugs

    Life is never that simple to walk through the door.Your last line stayed with me.Introvert or Extrovert?I might be an extrovert to the world,bt in reality I'm more of an introvert who socialize.I enjoy my solitude,my cocoon,and though I hve plenty of friends,few will really reach me wholly.I really find this poem interesting Silent One.Complicated comprises lead to failure many a time,when they don't fail,then they 'll be a huge success because they would have overcome it all.Love you write.GR8

    wow, excellent. I love your use of language and the alliterations,

    A deeply evocative write of intricate design to be undertaken by few and fewer still to triumph, as have you. And the poem culminated in words of true distinction, on the one hand polished, on the other, sharpened, like an arrow.

    A fav S.O. , every now and then you write one that blows me away to smithereens. This is one of them. Thanks for being on soup, without you this place would have no flavor.

    This is excellent, S.O.--insightful and moving. Favorite lines: 5 and 15. I wonder how many times I've been drained (drained myself) due efforts to be understood--and STILL not been understood--and how many times I've felt I failed to find that balance . . .! A FAVE! Janice

    - The subjective experience of a feeling, such as sadness, anger, joy, excitement, fear ... that's our life :) - One of our greatest illusions of life is that we think we live from the outside and in - Life is not easy, my friend :) - An excellent writing - hugs // Anne-Lise :)

    Wish life could be as simple as walking through a door. Problem we don't always know what's on the other side. Brilliant use of alliteration.
