I had words,
but could not speak
my eyes misled,
my smile inappropriate,
this body danced,
it pounced and pranced — I spoke
I had many words without a useful mouth,
lips tied; double knotted, invisible string
eyes blinked immeasurable worlds
ears that sang colors for no one to feel
my hands stroked brushes in minglings,
emotions without voice — I spoke
my own personal meltdowns,
shutdowns raging in a stoic face,
masked and cradled in between scratching hands,
nails penetrating flesh,
scars coated in silenced words,
erupting to speak out,
words aggressively broke free,
these fingers glided letters in form — I spoke
I wrote this as a first form of expression when pondering a post for today’s Expressions of PosAutivity #AutismPositivity2014. I decided to go ahead and share on this blog as well. Here is my contribution to the flashblog Many Facets of Expression: Expressions of PosAutivity #AutismPositivity2014.
