Freedom of an Autistic Mind

The place I really feel free

Is in my company, alone.

But if I see an individual

I’ll give a groan.

 

Not social anxiety exactly

But I’ll feel inhibited

Like they’ll judge me

Before a word is said.

 

Well, I say alone,

But animals are great.

I can even feel restricted

With a lifelong mate.

 

It’s funny but I felt free

Alone in a cell.

I reckon some people

Would find it hell.

Feelings

I'm not cold, I'm autistic.

I shed more tears for my last cat,

Than I have for my father

But they are both dead now.
