Poetry topic idea: introversion

Today’s poetry topic idea is introversion.  There are a lot of ways to look at introversion.  Poet could write about:

  • The difference between introversion and extroversion.
  •  

  • The societal perception of introversion.
  •  

  • An introvert finding something difficult (e.g. mingling at a party)
  •  

  • An introvert finding something relaxing (e.g. sitting by themselves reading a book).
  •  

  • An introvert not talking to someone (e.g. a stranger next to them on a plane trip).
  •  

  • An introvert expressing themselves (for example, through poetry).
  •  

  • A person trying to overcome their introversion. An example of this might be an introvert getting a sales job even though they find it difficult.
  •  

  • A person embracing their introversion. An example of this might be an introvert getting a job copy editing because they find it comfortable.
  •  

  • An extrovert attempting to get an introvert to “get out of their shell”.
  •  

  • An introvert before a social gathering.
  •  

  • An introvert after a social gathering.
  •  

  • The difference between introversion and shyness.

Here is an example poem:

no one
talked to him
at the party
because he
talked to no one

he
talked to no one
at the party
because no one
talked to him
