I know I am trapped by the world if I am myself.
So I lock myself and look at the world from a distance, it's a softer trap.

I spent many years trying to destroy that part of me that was so different from everyone that I knew. There was absolutely no awareness when I was a child of what this all might mean. There was just something really "wrong" with me and it came close to making me crazy. There seemed to be a chasm between "me" and the world.

coming at it with a different tack, I was trapped inside myself in terms of not knowing just how alien I was. I was the thing that wouldn't leave but I didn't know it.
