Soul Deep Isolation

Soul-deep isolation
alone among the crowds
so distant, disconnected
I thought about those words
Pen wrote “soul-deep isolation”
and I understood the meaning
those words made total sense
reminded me I am not alone
the ‘aspie’ community knows
understands when other do not
quirky, different, odd somehow
chaotic dark jumble thoughts
intensified cascade of chaos
complex analytic processing
engines full power, high speed
crash you can no longer think
just blank piercing empty pain
used up and then throw away
will I ever connect, be a real part
my destiny a parallel existence
I look upon all the smiling faces
like an alien, alienated, alone
another world that’s not mine
where I will never quite fit!

    Thanks Jodine


    raved I see myself as more neuro diverse, as I have spectrum traits, intellectual learning and mental differences… I advocate with a passion because myself I searched for far to long and really felt the world was behind a glass screen and somehow I could not find a way in!

    You are a great advocate for the ‘aspies’ Alyson.
    This poem ‘connects’.
