I Like It Now

Laughing

is all I hear

and my tummy

feels amazing

and who knows

what my face is doing?

 

this movie is so funny

I am here

alone

and feeling happy

 

not that alone

is better than with

oh no, I wouldn’t say that

 

this is fun

sometimes leaning forward

sometimes touching my face

sometimes squirming with pleasure

 

nobody cares,

especially

not me no

not anymore

 

I am here alone

and I am happy

not that alone is

better than with, oh no

 

but if someday

I am with

ever again,

I hope it’s with an Aspie

like me

I Like It Now
