I do not need another slice of cake, my stomach just won't take it, and don't give me any custard, it brings me out in spots. I do not need anything spicy or bland or hot or frozen. I will eat anything shoved under my nose, if its cooked, So make sure that it's not raw, or smack down, or pay-per-view. I do not need poetry, or any other Wikipedia entries. I do not need access to my childhood home, it's not mine anymore, I won't find mother ignoring me, or father getting drunk at the club, there's just nothing there except unemployment. I do not like the tastes of childhood, I do not want a cold, damp attic, I do not want peeling wallpaper and mould, I do not get enquiries about my favourite. I not longer want to recall my midnight lament dreaming about adventures in asphalt brindle cowering from the squawks and chirps from urban wildlife scuffles. I do not need stillness I don't want to relax I don't want to enjoy I don't want to recline I do not need compensation I do not need your advice I hate the way you peer at me over your glasses and scribble notes into your notebook, you'll want me to make butterflies from wet paint you'll want some kind of update on my condition. you'll need me to eat another slice of cake just to watch my stomach not take it.

“I do not like the tastes of childhood”—that line really touched me. Childhood is supposed to be a happy, carefree time, but for many of us, it left a bad taste in our mouths. Some of it, anyway.
Great writing, may I share this one? (credit given, of course)
Of course, and thanks.
