Poetry – There’s Been a Mistake

There's been a mistake
somewhere.
This is not
how it was all
supposed to go.

You, over there
laughing
as I prick my finger
on verbal razors.

Me, bleeding,
faking a smile
wishing 
I could manage
to be good
just this once.

Hi! I am an artist, author, and blogger who also happens to have Asperger’s Syndrome. I have won several awards and honors for my writings and artwork. I suffer from a few severe mental illness and chronic pain conditions (Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Fibromyalgia, CFS/ME, Ehlers Danlos, Degenerative Disc Disease, etc.), which greatly affects my life and makes me want to advocate for others going through similar things. Other interests of mine include reading, writing, drawing, watching cartoons and movies, collecting toys, hanging out with my family, and annoying my 3 cats.

  1. I translated your poem into Italian

    C’é stato un errore

    C’è stato un errore
    da qualche parte.
    Non è stato
    come tutto
    dovrebbe andare.

    Tu, laggiù
    stai ridendo
    mentre mi pungo il dito
    su rasoi verbali.

    Io sanguinante
    sto simulando un sorriso
    desiderandoti.
    Potrei farcela,
    andare bene
    solo questa volta.
