Autistic She

Autistic She

A Poem by moog-drika
"

A piece from 2013

"

The faulty dusk was sprinkling his water
      on the armor of the road.
I was autistic,
   a deceased body,
     nurtured by scenery,
I felt his rain.


My emotions, 

   were avoiding the social weather.
and my behavior
    was talking to the traumatic vision.


My numb feelings were laughing alone,
and the euphoric tears were crying out loud.
I was dead an era ago.
but my chirpy presence is still alive.

I love every single word of this. I've never seen anyone display the quirks of the mind with such spunk & panache. I am bipolar, but sometimes I'm so intensely unsocial, I feel as if I could be on the autism spectrum. You illustrate the uncharted swerves my mind/mood takes as a bipolar that rapid-cycles. One reason I prefer to be alone is becuz I can't relate to most people who live typical lives. I am a million miles from the things most people chatter about. I just keep getting more & more "out there" as I age & this poem makes this feel beautiful instead of weird (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I love how the construction of the last 4 lines contradicts to how the other lines were written, really was an autistic one.

I'd only want to say, they are some of the earthly angels and living hopes for others, full of innocence and no hate ...is the strongest weapon they have to defend themselves from us the cruel so called humans.

Like this, my son was autistic, but has sadly been missing for two years. This poem captures the difficult, fragmented world of autism, well done!
