to my ValentineWhat is this warmth inside my chest?
What has brought these things anew?
What is this smile upon my lips?
Though, it's not a "what"it's "who".
Who could possibly mend my broken heart?
Who could ever be the one
to bare all of my differences?
To my life's storm cloudswho's the sun?
Who's brightening my every thought?
Someone's in my heart but who?
Who's becoming my light when I'm in the dark?
That someone must be you.
You're everything I ever dreamt of,
And you're even better still.
I'd like to think you'd love we always,
So please, tell me that you will.
You're Perfect and you're Beautiful.
Don't you dare think otherwise.
Don't you try to give me arguments,
For in your heart, perfection lies.
I know I am in love with you,
I've never felt like this before.
One day I hope I get the chance
to prove I love you more.
Never have I met someone
as amazing as you are.
Please don't fret about the distance,
For in our hearts, we're not so far.
I never want our love to die,

Nothing's here for sure.
Things like love that's "unconditional"
Turn corrupted and impure.
Things like that little girl you loved,
Things like your daughter's heart,
Nothing lasts forever, Dad,
You tore that girl apart.
She never meant to disrespect,
She just wanted you to see,
Through all the fighting and neglect,
I was to born just to be me.
Why couldn't you have understood?
Or tried, at least, to care?
Instead, we're giving up again,
I'll move on without you there.
You denied I was your child,
Because I'm not as you demanded,
I was thrown out of your life so fast,
I can't believe you've left me stranded.
Daddy, nothing lasts forever,
And I'll assure you, this I know,
Despite the bruises and the tears,
Still I am to reap what I sow.
Thoughts are buzzing in my mind,
How did things work out this way?
How could you just give me up
Based on the two small words: "I'm gay"?
I'm simply nothing in your eyes,
From me, apologies you'll never hear,
Dad, I promise,
Three Letters You never know when the wind will blow, or much less where it'll take you. I walked into the familiar classroom with an ambiance of solace, and I thought nothing of my masked pain. I sighed, and for the first time in the entirety of the day, I breathed in clean, untainted air. My lungs were no longer heavy, and there was no more restraint. This was the class I could let go in; here was where I could let my guard down. Isn't it awful when you're convinced of something that is only to be contradicted with irony? Well, awful it was! Little did I know upon walking in, we were to begin brainstorming for none other than a skit for Anti-Bullying. The original thought wasn't horrid at all; I actually was looking forward to an awareness project. However in doing so, we were to list common insults and responses. From the minute we were given said assignment, I knew the word I so awfully dreaded couldn't be far away. My ears awaited the painful word like dry land awaThree Letters4 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
