This very personal. It really shows the difficulties that I had being "human"

If light were to shine
Through the memory in my mind,
Would a prism emit forth
Colorful alive hues of recollections?

No, for I fear that the light
that shines through my subconscious,
Spews only the extremes;
Black and white revisions
of clouded make believes.

Light brings out the imagery
Of the fantasies and dreams;
Created within,
To protect from without.

Seemingly real,
But only in my thoughts;
I lived my live inside these creations,
Feeling safe from reality
With only the lack of color
Showing through to the masses
Would I ever let be.

I dare not disturb that which
Belonged to me.
Pain happened inside,
Which most would never see;
Unknowing and confused
Unable to empathize with
That which I could never let be.

Outwardly happy at times,
But inside the dreams
they ran on, ruling my interactions
Condemning myself to a constant retreat.

Today with some help
From professional polishers,
The prism begins to let pass
A more colorful man;
Some color, some black and white
Someone who may finally see
The full spectrum of my memory light.
