I’d Rather be Home

From today’s Daily Prompt: Why Can’t We Be Friends

I'd Rather be Home

I’d Rather be Home


Though I smile wide and bright

I take no delight 

Meeting new friends, causes me fright


Please don’t tell me to mingle

The thought makes me tingle

I’d rather sit silently, happily single


You can safely deduce

If I have an excuse

I’ll be avoiding this cause to bemuse


How do others chit chat and mix

When I see no fix?

I am lacking this social bag of tricks


Alone in the crowd

Voices blurry and loud

I’d rather lie in an unheard death-shroud



Often there’s one

Eyes like a quiet night’s sun

Depth showing possible connection


Though alone in a corner

There’s strength in this foreigner

I’m no longer this gathering’s sole mourner


For an evening or more

I’ve a soul to explore

This event, no longer an uncomfortable bore

    • Thank you.. I found the topic challenging, as I just am not good at being stuck in the middle of a room having to talk to strangers, unless I “put on” another face, so to say, which is not me, so I would just rather not do!.
      Thank you 🙂
