unrequited love

Written a while ago, but echoes aspects of Luke’s post – ‘Why do autistics need to be compared to the predominant neurotype all the time?’  and responses/comments.

 

 

Wanting

To be like you

 

Another lead balloon

Hangs in the air between us

 

Waiting

 

You carry on regardless

 

We chat

Laugh

 

Wondering

You make it look so easy

Seeing

Hearing

Feeling

Touching

Thinking

 

While

Transparent

Hearing colour

Touching sound

Feeling words

Seeing thought

 

Until you stop

 

Waiting

 

Finding

Pressed like a flower

In the pages of a book

Words that don’t fit the time

 

Found

Wanting
