I found out that with you,
promises were never kept
& forever,
was never long
so, I had to accept
that our love would last for just a song.
I've been writing again. Not my best but I'm happy I'm writing for the sake of writing.
Much love, N.
settle down, settle down
always on the run
ever standing by

mind and heart far out the window
meandering between hope and fear
can't handle standing still

downward spiral
get out, escape
force yourself to stay, be happy

can't resist the feeling
something is waiting
it must be

not looking for 'perfect'
in need of less and more
and something special

there's no other way
decisions made
no second chances

fated to fly
forever like this

please accept me
for who i am.

accept that i'm:
different.
weird.
wild.
gullible.
silly.
giddy.
kind.
generous.
emotional.
passionate.
amusing.

hang on,
why should i ask for your acceptance?
when i need to first learn to accept myself.
love and embrace who i am.
because one day there will be a person who will love me for who i am.
but first i need to love myself.
learn to accept yourself. There will be a person that will love you, but what about yourself? You are first and should always be.

The dragon
prefers to stay far away from
towns and cities

Don’t disturb it.

For it will breathe fire to those who displeases it.
Don’t assume it’s a weakling,
hiding.

For it will unleash its wings
And show you not to underestimate
something by the exterior.
for those who are quiet and shy but have a fire in their soul and have so much to offer than those who target them with poor judgement for being a 'weakling' to sit at the corner away from the buzz. And would rather watch and admire life from afar.

peering at the mournful glances,

leaving flowers in several hundred baskets

I’m not like you,
I may never be,
But I still need friends
Who accept me for me.

My hair may be purple,
It may be cut short,
There may be piercings
As well as tattoos.

I’m not an alien,
Just ‘cause I’m different,
But you’ll only know that,
If you see me for me.

I’m more than I look like,
I’ve got a big heart,
I will be your friend,
If you want to have me.

But do not assume,
Now don’t get me wrong:
That I’ll change for you,
That would be wrong.

I’d be glad for your friendship,
But you must see,
That I need friends,
Who accept me for me.

Heaven rained on me,
I breathed in the petrichor,
Bathed in the downpour.
I have sinned,
So destroy me,
With your rain.

If you learn to live life with sadness,
You'll never die with true happiness

Today I’ll ponder,
on these scars.
Tonight I’ll wish,
upon a star.

Tomorrow may bring,
another wound,
but wounds can heal,
if treated soon.

Yesterday,
I thought of death,
and felt the wind,
sigh with his breath.

Not today,
he whispered clear,
perhaps tomorrow,
but do not fear.

In the end,
he comes to all.
The weak, the strong,
the big and small.

He’s timeless and constant,
Death’s always “been”,
and he has no pity,
foe or friend.

He’ll lead me on,
to the unknown,
giving me the thing,
he can never own.

So I will not fear him,
and I shall not fret.
For tomorrow,
has not happened yet.
Death comes to us all.
Sometimes I hope that someone might notice my difference,
Might intuit that the first approach,
The handshake, the "Can I join you?"
Is simply more difficult
And make the first move.
Sometimes I hope that people will realize the hand motions,
Foot tapping, slight rock of the body or toes
Are not merely a restless fidget,
Not impatience, nor disrespect.
Sometimes I want to be invisible,
Normal,
Neurotypical,
To be just another human being,
But mostly I wish to be accepted,
Autistic, quirky, kind, creative,
ME.
