i thought i posted this, but some how was misplaced. who knows maybe a reader may notice this was a repeat of an earlier writting.

Socially inept
Not fearing regret
Saying without thinking
Differs in simply writing

Touched by Aspergers
Words counted on fingers
Small to none at all
As if talking to a wall

My voice now written
Annoyed by effort taken
Using shorthand impossible
A game to compress possible

Not that my mind is in order
Constantly checking disorder
Thoughts come and go
Ideas written as they flow

Words can be daunting
To me a bit haunting
In continuity, adding words needlessly
To the point of causing futility

Here I'm alone silently happy
Able to express without body
A natural progression for me
My feelings and thoughts being poetry

Don’t mind that, Sluggy. I’ve posted the same pieces multiple times over, usually inadvertently. If people mind that, I’m fearful for how they’d mind the actual content of the writing…

If I identified myself with the labels diagnosed to me by “professionals” (professional at being smug shit talkers), I would be forever miserable. Robotic unattached professionals scarcely consider the connotations of mental health labels, being so disaffected and jaded by years of talking shit and fingering their own sanctimonious holes, simultaneously moaning in pleasure as they keep a straight face and politely usher you out of the room in a practised, masterful way… that’s their job, after all, and the vast majority of them observe this fact, however delusional.

I’m happy you take joy in expression. Keep creating. It’s real medicine.

Thanks! Yep, i think if I post what once was written a while back, it may make more sense now. As it seems these so called lost writings were probably late last year.

Also, a bit of my writing started off as I had woken up from sleep. I dont remember or actually dream now, but when I wake I have thoughts come into a wee picture. Thus my odd writting, of way back when starting out. Now I sleep better, so I don't wake with much to express. Now its sit down and wait for something to pop up when not distracted.

Ha! About your analytical mind on the critique of others. I get amused on why people can be so one what seems of average quality to high standards.

I always took your direct knowledge with your writing skills a bit more advanced than mine, mostly by intellect, as in explaining your study, so it was not required in explanation.

I never could manage English or reading in school, I had college level reading abilities but could not apply it into writing. Ha! In fact hated both. Go figure on that, as I have written more here than all of schooling. At least it seems so. Ha!

As for why i don't read much here, i don't want what i read to effect my creativity. Not the critique will have effect, but what may be patterns or words effect thoughts. One thing i dont want to hear is you write like so and so... Or did you read this or that. Ha!

Any way, Thanks for your kind words and interest.
