Note: In no way whatsoever am I trying to make fun of people with Tourette Syndrome or ADD. This was something I wrote while bored in Driver's Ed (yeah, great class to not pay attention to) and I had a lot of fun writing it, though by no means am I poking fun at anyone. In my mind, it's an insight as to why I can't seem to form a coherent thought around someone I like, or tell a guy exactly how I feel about him. I know I'm not the only girl whose random thoughts slip from their minds in situations like that. That's all I was getting at, and if you take out the -twitches- and the random ADD phrases, it's a poem about saying what the other person wasn't ready to hear, but having to face it nonetheless. It's happened to the best of us. Like saying "I love you" too soon or giving a best friend permission to take your ex, then realizing you still -- anyway.

Oh, and sorry if it does offend anyone, but it wasn't meant to. So if it does, then just...I don't know, get over it. It's supposed to be fun.


I Have Emotional Tourettes (And ADD, Too)

I think I have emotional Tourettes
(damnit!)
Sorry.
(twitch)
And ADD, too.
Where was I? (twitch)
Yes, I remember—
Wait, whoa, did you see the sky?
Whoa.
(screw you!)
Oh yes—I have emotional Tourettes
And I shouldn't have said what I did to you
I don't (coffee!) take it back
It all still—
Aw, what a pretty birdie!
—rings true twitch
But my mouth—
la boca!
—gave up more than even my heart knew
(damn. coffee!) Ooh, a kitty!
And I'm (twitch, twitch—damn!)
sorry that I—
Oops, I smudged the paper—
Do you have a quarter?
Pepper Jack and Colby are my favorite cheeses…
—unleashed (coffee!)
My Tourettes (twitch) and ADD on—
What's on TV?
