#lovenotfear poetry

if i could create you with words

your every glance unchanged

your every touch burning

i would

if i could create you with paints

your breath the colour of dreams

your voice the soft touch of feathers

i would

if i could create you with sounds

your eyes the shadows of angels

your hair the whisper of a seductress

i would

if they would all be sad imitations

an inadequate love poem

pale water colors

a song for deaf ears

still i would

When Autism $peaks denies that Autistic people have empathy, that we can feel for others… I challenge them to read this and then try to say it again.
