I hide from the sunlight of the world,
trying to find some comfort between the
letters that I memorize.
Words of affirmation.
Words that make me feel normal.
Less strange at the least.
I embrace the sterility of the walls inside.
Sheltering myself from the rainbow of outside.
I tune into the white noise inside,
Having grown tired of their sensationalistic music.
I lay covered by my cold,
hiding from their warmth.
I am struggling to breathe now.
My own air suffocating me.
My own coldness burning me.
My own noise bleeding through my ears.
My own letters mocking me for my strangeness.
I open the doors.
I open my doors.
To the outside.
To their outside.
I have been rejected
I am now their refugee.
