A mind born fractured
with a golden nucleus
of scientific brilliance,
its protective albumen
of emotions and social
recognitions leaks through
its cracked outer shell
splashing useless droplets
through the boundless

Disoriented in this unseen
condition, not recognising
close links to those around
him he is fearful, often
standing apart in childhood.
In adulthood he connects
tenuously with a few who
want to connect to him but
rarely lets them close to him.

This golden nucleus is losing
its outer protection over the
years as it still splashes out
into endless nothingness.
