This is Autism (by Alice)

Written by Alice

When I listen to my favourite song I can feel the lyrics run through me and break out through my limbs in stimming
When I’m alone in the dark with a soft blanket it feels like nothing can ever hurt me again
When I need to memorise something, give me ten minutes with it, and then I can recite it off by heart
When I find a word I like I say it again and again and again and when it rolls off my tongue it’s like magic
When I stim it’s like a thousand weights lift of off my skin and I can finally breathe
This is what you want to take away from me
This is Autism
