I am INFP 2

1.
Outside - cool, calm, kind;
Deeper - rage, fear, devotion;
Iron bars between.


2.
Patience, compassion,
Reserved, quiet smiles to
Mask the world within.


3.
Morning, the plant grinned
I smiled, named it “Lawrence”
You scowled; I’m hopeless.


4.
Honour, pride, fealty
I hold close; you smile and talk
About X-Box games.


5.
Stranger, stranger, you
Don’t see all that I see and
I weep for your loss.
Second installment in "I am INFP" series -this time in the form of five haikus.

...Wow. I haven't done a haiku since... I don't even remember, actually. Hope they're not terrible!

I used to name the family cars, too! :D And the house plants, and the computers, and... most things, really. I think my parents used to think I was insane - then they found out I was just an INFP. :lol:

Heh I usually just kept my names to myself. :P
I would walk to the cars while I was outside sometimes and just whisper to them when no one was watching... Those were the days. ; u;

Ahahahahahah! Lawrence doesn't feel quite so lonely now! :XD:

The iron bars aren't so much a cage as they are restraints, much like how an introvert might choose to refrain from expressing his or her emotions too openly. Be it a mindset, or perhaps a lack of words with which to express him/herself, the restraint is both friend and foe to the speaker, yet the bars are neither good nor bad; they are simply there.

ha ha! yay lawrence made a new friend!

and that's true. i was trying to say its sort of a subconcious choice for the person to be restrained or caged. so its not really to protect others so much as its like a comfort zone kind of thing. i get really mixed up when im trying to make a point sorry!

Lawrence flapped his leaves around in a plant-y expression of joy. XD

Essentially, yes, the restraints are more for the speaker than anyone else, and the manner of the restraints are often of the speaker's choosing. However, the speaker's rationale for the restraints is unknown, left open to interpretation.

Don't apologize! Never apologize for your interpretation of a piece of art, poem, or story! I deliberately made these haikus vague so that I could see this variety of interpretations!
