Humorless nerd

I am a somewhat quirky nerd

Wrapped in my cocoon in this world

To be more social, I aspire

To interact with more people is my desire

*

But small talk I cannot make

Showing interest, I cannot fake

So many things I find superfluous

Or plain boring, there is much I can’t discuss

*

I think sometimes I am too cynical

At other times I am hypercritical

Unfortunately I seem to sniff out nonsense

Too quickly, I just look for substance

*

I come across as too serious, I am aware

I’m not fun to be with, I can declare

Humor seems to be wasted on me

Maybe I take everything too literally..

*

In writing this verse, I’ve realized one thing indeed

To develop a sense of humor is what I need

To connect with people, I should be less uptight

Laugh self-deprecatingly, not worry about being right
