Powers That Beat by @ELyssaD™: Embracing my life with Aspergers

Embracing my life with Aspergers

For me, learning I had Aspergers was a huge relief. An “OMG” moment… you mean there is a name for it?

I have always been different.

I find the ordinary world ridden with useless scents, sounds, noise, and people.

People that lie, manipulate and hate.

Manipulative people are a mystery to me. Why not just ask for what you need?

I have always been one to give people what they need. Not necessarily what they want, but what the need.

People don’t need that loud blaring music or strong scented perfume.  All it does is provide a distraction. One I can live with out.

When asked questions, I tell people the truth unaware that the truth is not what they want to hear. Kinda like, “do these pants make my ass look fat?” my reply might be, “no your ass makes your ass look fat.”

Not exactly what people want to hear, huh?

I notice other behaviors and “oddities” that can now be attributed to Aspergers… not liking to be hugged by strangers; difficulty dancing with people other than myself.. I want to ask, “what do I do with my hands?”

I still get lost in my own head, my own home, my own neighborhood… but I’m finding my way… I may have gotten here a little later than most, but hopefully points are given for starting late and finishing strong.

My life with Aspergers is just beginning… I have much to do…

For now, that’s all.

Just me,

Hands Clean – ELyssa Durant © 2012

“Hands Clean”

If it weren’t for your maturity none of this would have happened

If you weren’t so wise beyond your years I would’ve been able to control myself

If it weren’t for my attention you wouldn’t have been successful and

If it weren’t for me you would never have amounted to very much

Ooh this could be messy

But you don’t seem to mind

Ooh don’t go telling everybody

And overlook this supposed crime

We’ll fast forward to a few years later

And no one knows except the both of us

And I have honored your request for silence

And you’ve washed your hands clean of this

You’re essentially an employee and I like you having to depend on me

You’re a kind of my protégé and one day you’ll say you learned all you know from me

I know you depend on me like a young thing would to a guardian

I know you sexualize me like a young thing would and I think I like it

Ooh this could get messy

But you don’t seem to mind

Ooh don’t go telling everybody

And overlook this supposed crime

We’ll fast forward to a few years later

And no one knows except the both of us

I’ve more than honored your request for silence

And you’ve washed your hands clean of this

What part of our history’s reinvented and under rug swept?

What part of your memory is selective and tends to forget?

What with this distance it seems so obvious?

Just make sure you don’t tell on me especially to members of your family

We best keep this to ourselves and not tell any members of our inner posse

I wish I could tell the world cause you’re such a pretty thing when you’re done up properly

I might want to marry you one day if you watch that weight and keep your firm body

Ooh this could be messy and

Ooh I don’t seem to mind

Ooh don’t go telling everybody

And overlook this supposed crime

UR – ELyssa Durant © 2012

“UR”

burn the books they’ve got too many names and psychosis

all this incriminating evidence would surely haunt me

if someone broke into my house

suits in the living room

do you realize guys I was born in 1974

we’ve got someone here to explain your publishing

we know how much you love to be in front of audiences

hopeful you are

schoolbound you are

naive you are

driven you are

take a trip to new york with your guardian

and your fake identification

when they said “is there something anything

you’d like to know young lady?”

you said “yes I’d like to know what kind of people

i’ll be dealing with”

precocious you are

headstrong you are

terrified you are

ahead of your time you are

don’t mind our staring but

we’re surprised you’re not in a far-gone asylum

we’re surprised you didn’t crack up

lord knows that we would’ve

we would’ve liked to have been there

but you keep pushing us away

resilient you are

big time you are

ruthless you are

precious you are
