I present as autistic, although I have never been diagnosed as such. I cannot turn down the opportunity to make puns. I do not “get” emotions. Life is “going through the motions”. Perfumes either make me choke, or mask the sounds of the outside. I can count on my hand the number of time I have lied. I feel everything with extreme passion outwardly. I feel very little inwardly. It is hard to explain things without using literary devices. I don’t trust people who like me. Most of my life I have been afraid. My favourite colour is orange. I have faith in few, and it is always the brave. I want to be left alone, but it’s connection that I crave. I pull my hair out in worry. I hide it. Badly.

Solitude.

Alone.

In hovel.

But happy,
in a way.



I think back to years ago -
when I was your age…



I ran away.


I set my own stage.


The curtains burned,
and the wings fell over,
but it was my own.

My own space.

Now?

I tried so hard

I tried so hard

to be

BEAUTIFUL
and
COOL,

but it never happened.


Instead,
I became a pastiche of
a parody.


Poorly written,
and worsely made.




All I want is to be held again.




A shadow’s version
of a...

I am not dead

I have just said goodbye
to a woman
who could be described
as “the love of my life”.

Months of intimacy,
that felt like years.

Souls
intertwined
in
Autistically
discussed
intricacy.

No, no.

For real.

She made me...

“Art thou art?”




Art.

The beat.

The beating.

The clap.



The meeting of

minds and

BODIES.



The slap.



Throw me to the concrete.


Slice my sentences apart.


Hold no mercy in

ANY way,

[[A little late,
this time,
as I often am -
but I’ve been packing my life away
to make a journey
for a different land.]]



People misunderstand the number “1”.

They think
that it is sad.

“Intrinsically lonely”.

But it isn’t....

In games of life and death,
no-one wins,
not really.

But the flip-side reveals a lot,
a chance to note
what’s
going on.

Have re-read this for the first time since writing it.

Very mawkish.

Poorly written.

I think the sentiment has some good that shines through.

I shall rest,
with your permission.

I shall write,
with no contrition.

A moment’s pause,
a chance to think…
that tick’ling touch -
a call to drink.

So I shall rest
at the edge of tracks,

a chance to truly
hit the max.
