A quiet soul longing for connection in this loud and disconnected world The isolation is heavy cumbersome A physical ache My desolation echoes off empty walls down empty halls The words are empty today Unfulfilling Copyright (C) 2021 Penny Wilson
I’m an introvert. Big surprise, right? I need my down time and quiet time to recharge. I think that’s why I’m still single. I push men away if they demand too much from me. I’m alone a lot of the time and most of the time I don’t mind it at all. I’m not lonely except on rare occasions.
I think about dating again once in a while and then I think, “why bother?” I know how it will end. I’ll push him away, we’ll both be hurt and I’ll be alone again.
I’ve gotten so that I don’t know how to do anything else other than what I’m doing. I’ve looked back and I’ve always said that I didn’t want to be alone. But that’s exactly the path I’ve chosen.
