Someone better [autistic poetry]

Please read and enjoy the work of a talented writer.

the silent wave

(This was written about 3.5 years ago, inspired by the beautiful melancholic song “Someone Purer” by Mystery Jets (link to video on YouTube). I wanted to share it with you today. I’ll issue a mild, general Content Advisory; I can’t determine anything specific, but there are a few underlying internal issues.)

I feel the world closing in
And I’m not comfortable in my own skin
Once again, it’s not enough
And I don’t know where to begin

What if I
Was someone better
Someone smarter
Someone more beautiful
Someone purer…
…And I’ll have you know

I’m all turned around
And my sky is falling down
It’s a wonder I’ve survived
But I don’t feel so alive

Where do I go from here?
Who have I become?
What have I ever done to you?
Where else could I possibly have run?

What if I
Was someone better
