I like girls okayWow. Well this isn't easy.
Hello, internet. One of you in particular.
Today I have to tell you- Oh, deviation title, you ruined it!
I don't think I just like girls, honestly. But I'm not exactly in the middle either. I can't even be sure what end of the spectrum I'm closer to, probably the one I'd much rather not be, but why does it really matter?
It isn't a phase. But I sure wish it was. It's something that's been here a long, long time, longer than I was even conciously aware of.
It doesn't mean that I hit on every girl I see or on my friends or anything like that. It doesn't mean that I'm gonna start going by the stereotype. It doesn't mean anything about me has changed, because it hasn't.
This is certainly not what I would choose if I could, know that. There's a lot I would do to change it, but nothing I can do. Like me, you just have to take it or leave it.
"I like girls the way I'm supposed to feel about boys. It's something that's always been inside of me and I really want to sh

It is not a choice.
It certainly isn't in just black and white,
No, there are many colours in a rainbow.
It is not just you.
It is not just me.
It certainly isn't abnormal,
No, there are many people like us.
It is not only painful.
It is not for attention.
It certainly isn't a game,
No, this is serious.
It's what you make it out to be.
Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

why can't i just tell my friends
"hey, I'm transgender"

i just really really hate
that we have to be told
"we still love you"

it just feels like they're taking pity on us
but i don't want their pity

I can almost feel the warmth
from her skin.
Oh, how badly I want to touch her.
To grab her hand,
and steal her away from this world.
She doesn't deserve
to go through all of this pain.
I've seen her scars,
and I know she's seen mine.
There's a butterfly on her wrist.
She's giving me subtle hints.
I steal a glimpse,
and our eyes lock.
My heart is racing.
Can she hear it?
Thoughts soar through my mind.
If only she knew,
she would be mine.

As I cross the ghostly streets,
Nothing feels right in these haunted blocks.
Am I all alone?
As I stumble in an alley,
Vomiting up my dinner and shots.
Am I all alone?
As I float up the stairs
To my new paradise.
Am I all alone?
As I step over to the edge,
Not wasting a tear.
Am I all alone?
As I plummet to the water
From that high, high bridge.
Am I all alone as I come to a

Do you see it in me?
You're a girl with a heart
A girl with an open mind
Do you feel what I do?
Do you feel the chemistry?
I didn't expect this to happen
It was the furthest thing from my mind
But that's how it goes, isn't it?
Infatuation and hope springs up
When least expected
When my guard is down
Are you willing to try?
Do you get excited when you hear my name?
Like I do with yours?
My heart jumps when I see you
I want to take the chance
But I don't want to scare you away
I want to show you what we could be
I want to see you every day
I tell you my secrets
And you tell me yours
I hope you feel this, too
Or is it all in my head?

What? Fuck no!
Why can't you just leave
Leave us alone
Stop calling me names.
Dyke, lesbo, and you know the rest
Your words...They hurt.
I forgot how few people accept me
My circle of friends seems suddenly smaller
But my world now,
So much bigger.
So? I love a girl.
Where's the harm in letting us be.

Is it wrong to dry her eyes,
Always long to hold her close,
Always want to calm her cries?
Can I not just lie with her,
Praying that the sun won't rise,
And when it does, go dance with her -
As raindrops pour from stormy skies -
Singing songs of love I know
That she will never criticize?
You wonder how I cherish her;
To me it's no surprise.

Fall In Love Like A PansexualWhen falling in love like a pansexual becomes complicated.Fall In Love Like A Pansexual3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When falling in love like a heterosexual is hard and shy.
When falling in like a homosexual is confusing.
When falling in love is just like falling in love any other way.
Basically, we all fall in love like a homo, like a pansexual, like a hetero, like anyone.
It's hard, complicated, hard, shy, and confusing.
Because when falling in love like a, well, whatever you are, is going to be the same.
You like someone. You get to know them. You befriend them. You fall in love with them.
So, what's the difference?
Are we not just different colored leaves on a tree in fall?
Still beautiful, but the bunch of us are different.
The greens, the reds, the yellows, the oranges, and the browns.
And maybe a green wants to be with a green? So?
Maybe a brown wants to be with a red? So?
Falling in love, and being in love, like a pansexual, is no different than being in love
like a hetero. It's just different.
The MirrorThey say a mirror never liesThe Mirror3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The one I stare in does
Instead of me looking back
There stands a stranger
A mask that I used to wear
While I lived a life that was a lie
Tears form as I ask this phantom
Who am I?
When will I be free?
Pain, anger, frustration
Cause me to lash out blindly
Slowly both the mirror
And the mask within start to crack
Until I can see glimpses of the real me
My eyes are blurry and red
Tears roll down my cheeks
A sorrow I would wish upon no other
Is etched upon my face
I go to place my hand upon the glass
And my reflection reaches out for me
Instead of my fingers touching a mere mirror
I touch warm flesh instead
"You can do this"
I hear a voice much like my own whisper
Only this has a manly tone that I lack
"You have to make it"
"There is no going back"
I sigh as strong arms wrap around me
Giving me the strength to carry on
Closing my eyes
I still my troubled thoughts
And ease the rapid beating of my heart
Soothing my soul with the knowledge

First of all, Happy Pride! Parades celebrating our identity and freedom have been held all throughout - and beyond - this bright month of June. I thought maybe we can hold our own parade right here, where everyone can participate! This idea is inspired by a similar thread over at ConceptArt. This will take place on our Tumblr page, created by :iconSomewhatRounded: A tumblr account isn't required to submit, and you can post anonymously. Just go to this page, http://letsmarchon.tumblr.com , and click Submit at the bottom of the right menu.
Idea: Create a collaborative online mural where each participant contribute a character/self-portrait marching in celebration of Pride.
How it Works:

Ode to SapphoOde to Sappho12 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Your raven hair gave no birth to
these honey hued tresses
your olive skin hides different
veins and muscles,
than this days-young tawniness
Your small breasts mimic mine, perhaps,
but that is mere legend.
No one knows for sure,
except the Gods.
Yet I feel your passion
as if I were born from your
vocal chords and sculpted
by those same fingers
which plucked that lyre of yore.
Sappho, imperfect woman,
Lead by love, by lust
Guided by good,
while revelling in rebellion
in my words!
Drip the juice of pomegranites
and Lesbian wine
from your mouth into mine!
Make love to me
like Isis, like Alcaeus,
Like Cleis, your own flesh and blood.
Recreate this modern woman
trim away the polluted chaos
of civilization and leave
me wrapped in your chiton;
My areolai red from wine-stained lips,
Body limp, thighs damp
from exhausted desire.
Then lullaby me to sleep
with your song--so powerful
it weakens Queens and woos
the Gods themselves.
Lastly, let me awake
