I Wish I'd Had a Mutant Suit

I wish I'd had a mutant suit who'd wave
goodbye to me as I rode away on
the bus to school.
I wish I'd had a mutant suit to run and
play with on those days alone on Logan street.
I wish I'd had a mutant suit to talk to
in my room before brushing my teeth
and going to sleep already dreading the early mourning.
I wish I'd had a mutant suit who'd keep
me informed of events in reality, to be
my link while lost in my fantasies.
I wish I'd had a mutant suit to hold me
close when no one else would. A
suit who sees beauty in embracing emotion,
who's tear is a flooding heart in love of
loving, yet receiving none.
I wish I had a mutant suit who could
understand someone coming along to take
me, leaving everything behind, where I
can fold up my mutant suit, and
not needing it any more, put it away.
