I will paint a picture
of my life with a border
a perfect picture of obsessive compulsive disorder
imagine inside a house  above a fire is a
framed painting
the painting is of a scene
inside a house with a painting on the wall
above the fire
and smaller again the painting on the painting
on the painting and it just gets smaller until it's a dot
A single dot left on the chalk board
the teacher missed a bit
"Miss youv missed  a bit"
That's it I'm sick of this
you are disruptive and dismissive
and down right rude
isolation room for you and there you will eat your food
they don't get it
I too don't get it
it must be done in threes
the autumn leaves
I have to stand on every leaf I see
if I don't something bad will happen to me
it makes me late
detention again Great
I say good bye 3 times at the end of a greeting
ok ok stop repeating
and then there's meeting and greeting
I feel contaminated..
OCD is under rated
I wish I had OCD they stated
my house would be spotless they say
they even laugh and joke why is this ok
late again ..i missed the bus...
no you didn't..you were at the bus stop with us
it was not my bus
how is this you liar..you go the same school as us
I had to wait for the third bus..i only work in threes
eeeuw I am contaminated I just breathed in Your sneeze
I feel so dirty now and home time is not for an hour
I really need to go home and get straight in the shower

my mind it doesn't rest
it's like im being posessed
I iron the same shirt three times before I can get dressed.
I'd love to fit in and go to your house for tea
but I'm afraid that I am worried
that you will laugh at me
I wouldn't be like this it's not the life I choose
I won't go in the house until iv cleaned three times my shoes
I miss out on so much it's annoying I'm not gonna lie
if I don't do what that voice says my whole family will die

next time you make a wish to have this ocd
look a little bit deeper ..its no fun being like me

So extremely well written Sarah. I've never wished for OCD, I had a friend with it you see. It's important to remember though, that all our differences make up one big beautiful whole. Great poem.

Oooh the the rhyming and sometimes content have a repetitiveness that rlly emphasises the msg of the poem and makes it easier to empathise with. Well done x
