Autistic

I hear you,
but I hear not what you say.
I see you,
but my eyes see thoughts elsewhere.
I look at you,
but your soul burns into me.
I feel you,
but your soft touch is too strong.
I hold onto you,
but I squeeze you too hard.
I want to speak,
but the words will not come.
I speak to you,
but my words make no sense.
I reach out,
then I retreat.
I live this life
of intensity,
sensitivity.
Please,
be patient with me.
