The silent ones

There's something to be said about the silent ones. They linger on the sidelines, nodding their heads approvingly, while saying little to nothing. Of course, it doesn't mean they have nothing to say, it means they don't want to say anything.

And, that's where the problem lies: no one understands them.

They think the silent ones are boring because they don't talk about their lives. No one knows what's going on because nothing is being shared with the others in the group. It doesn't mean they don't have lives. In fact, they're probably living it up, night after night, with other friends, lovers and strangers. They appear polite on the public, but in the privacy of their lives... is another (x-rated) story.

Why should they talk? They don't have to share anything with anyone. They can be as selfish with their private lives and thoughts just like the next person is airing their dirty laundry for everyone to smell.

In the end, the silent ones are the ones who have the most to say, they just don't say it out loud.

I have a lot to say, but I'll keep it to myself.
