Stay during my storm

I don't want you to leave me. I am scared that you will. But don't please. I can't imagine a world without you in it. My life is better with you around. Listening, validating, talking to me about how it can be...better. How I can get better. I know how hard you try to be [...]

My Brain

It's my brain, but I didn't ask for it. We are all born with a brain, this we know, but what we are not responsible for is what makes up our brains. My brain or my mind has a way of doing its own thing. Sometimes I'm surprised at the thoughts it has. Sometimes I [...]

Andre Golin

Asperger’s sucks. It’s like you’re stuck at the bottom rung of a social ladder, and no one cares. Like your hands are slippery and the step is wet and every damn foot above has to step on your fingers. Asperger’s is like treading on eggshells blindfolded.

Joe Caputo – “Spring of a Silent Legend”

"Spring of a Silent Legend" In the black caverns of travel Above the city beats In the cloister of clank and babble Blind to skyscraper and streets Inhaling before the egress Poprocks peppering oxygen New York's spiritual release After decades of distance and stasis In the relativity of mind and time The metropolis is where [...]
