    Little Words and A Little Bit elusive ….

    spare me the secrets or non-spoken truths that exists in the ether of your world. I am not as fragile as you think, nor am I naïve. This smile is not always in love but instead in the knowing of this game. Do you think it's not cute for me to see you work so very...

    I Like To Listen

    I'm a very shy person, so when ever I'm around a group of people, whether I know them or not, I like to just sit there and listen to their conversation.

    And I'M Not Sneaky

    A lot of things seem like they should go without saying but the more social people apparently need to hear those things I guess.

    Im The "Quiet One"

    I'm a listener and an observer. People don't usually pay attention to me because I'm quiet but I always pay attention to them whether I want to or not.

    Quiet Ones

    "It's always the quiet ones who are stranger than fiction." ~ Tears For Fears That's what I am: a quiet one. In high school I was the one who sat silently and listened as the others (when there were others with me) chattered. I just ate my lunch or scribbled doodles in my agenda...

    Caution !

    I'm sure it's better not to hit someone in front in a conversation or in life. If someone criticizes me, I think first looking at myself in a mirror, just to see if I'm wrong or not. If the person was wrong to criticize me, I prefer silence, the polemic is always destructive. But...

    I Just Play Like I'M Dumb, But Yet Have Gained Lots Of Wisdom Over The Years!

    The people around me often misconstrue my

    shyness as my ignorance. They think I don't get it. Sometimes some people say hurtful things to get a reaction out of me but I stay tongue- tied. I notice their selfishness and manipulations but I don't say anything. I rather ignore than talk rudely to anyone.

    Observation.

    I'm very observant by nature.

    I notice things most people overlook. So many people don't notice others when they need help. Or they do, but chose to ignore them and stick with their click( no pun intended).It's a sad commentary but it's true. Selfishness is in the rise, selflessness is fading. Where do you...

    The Quiet Ones, Are Always The Most Dangerous

    I'm a very quiet, introverted person. Don't get me wrong, I'm friendly and will talk to people, but I mostly just stand in the corner and watch. People sometimes underestimate me; they think that if I don't talk, I don't pay attention. How wrong they are. It's amazing how much...
