I like to be alone.

Alone, I can think
or read, learn, play or write
and just be me
without interruption.

I am not lonely.
Alone is good for me.

Even if you don’t like it,
have enough respect for me
to not say it’s bad
to do the things that
make me happy.

Happy Heart Day

Roses aren’t always red.
Frogs aren’t always green.
I have been awkward
since I was a teen.

This Valentine ritual
seems silly to me.
But if you need a heart,
take this frog’s. It’s free.

My eyes are not my ears.

I can listen to you without eye contact

I can listen to you
without eye contact.

My eyes are not my ears.

I’m kind of a superhero
like that.

I would rather have no friends…

I have never understood
the concept of pretending
to like someone
to “be polite.”

To me it’s rude
to pretend
to be someone’s friend.

I would rather have no friends
than have a billion fake ones.

It’s not that I’m not paying attention

It’s not that I’m not paying attention.
I’m just trying to figure out what you’re saying
and why you’re saying it to me.
