If you were to meet me for the first time you would walk away with the confirmation that I am an extrovert. I am animated with my hands, love the feeling of words flowing out of my mouth, and my mind races to grasp the next clever line as we speak. If you truly knew me, you would realize that if I am talking a lot, I'm overcompensating for how shy I may be feeling. I realized recently I am a closeted introvert. I crave the company of others but have a tipping point of exhaustion too. I have always felt most like myself with pen and paper. This book is a collection of poems and poetry that I unearthed from my youth and some I added after reading my past voices. By revealing them to you I once again put myself in a thrilling yet compromising position. I am also a glutton for punishment.
