Bored (Simply Writing About Autism)

I became bored Simply writing about autism I felt like every one else Just going on about the downfalls The misery, the mistakes It shouldn’t be ignored But it has its place I call it An Aspergian’s Chemical Romance Because I mix love with the acidic burn Of a childhood gone to waste The adoration […]

Nobody Listens To Me

Why should I listen Nobody listens to me When I say I’m tired, pouring on the pain Becomes involuntary Like the assumption that I’m slower Or not there at all Because I’m so still, so quiet Thinking, wondering, adding Really, you should try it But don’t ever ask how I’m feeling, no They only see […]

I’m Okay With This

Got a knack for poetry Crafting heartfelt lines Borne of an outsider Watching the world go by Never done what people said, got into trouble World’s not kind to my kind, be in my bubble Silently preying on those with open hearts Check my blogs, see a lot of orange dots I didn’t make a […]

The ABC’s of Me

The sun’s coming out I think it wants to talk To me To me? What have I done Nothing really Just a mess of life Confusing mercy with right Somewhat complacent In forever being better and worse Than the man in the mirror That’s me Who, me? Always thinking of something better And doing far […]

The Agony Inside

Cut me loose And let it free The agony inside of me I breathe you in, but it never comes out Shielded by anger and impenetrable doubt I’ve made a mess of me And in the shadows, I wonder about Which parts they see What do you ignore I want to be part of your […]

Check Please (I’m Tapping Out)

Are you happy now With the way I turned out You tricked me out, flipped me off And scorned me before the world Aren’t you delighted With the scars on my face, the crimson stains Skin dry with hunger for belonging Eyes wet with thirst for solace Tears homeless in a sanctuary of brothers I […]
