It’s just,
I am not what they call
A “people’s person”.
I don’t call,
I don’t make an effort
To keep in contact,
I try to avoid small talk
Which does nothing for me.
I am introverted.
I am hypocritic.
I am insecure.
I need others to reach for me,
Just to know that they want me.
I am all these vices.
But know this.
If you matter to me,
You will be in my heart.
And nothing can wear that corner out,
Not time, distance, or the world.
