"We have no room for you on the team. I'm sorry." Coach Brown says, but he sure looks nervous. He avoids looking at me at all costs; his eyes train on the clock above my head. Then they flick towards his phone, hoping someone to call him to get him out of this situation.
"What do you mean 'no room'? You even told us at the meeting that there would be plenty of room for everyone because of how small our school is." I growl. Does he actually think the crap he is giving me actually works? I'm not stupid. I'm not stupid at all.
"Look, Mr. Martin, there were more people trying out for tennis than anticipated. I wouldn't have said that if I'd have known so many people were actually interested." He says. He looks at the earring in my left ear, then quickly averts back to the American flag that sits on his desk. America: the

"Why? It's not like we're sleeping with each-other." she spat, and the other girl covered her own mouth.
"Please be careful, I-I don't want to get in trouble..." she whispered, and the other girl turned to her with a look of concern.
"We've done nothing wrong. Don't worry." she rubbed the girl's back, dagger eyes focused on the man. He coughed forcefully, eyes just as sharp as her own. His hands closed together, and he tightened them as the girl kissed the other girl's cheek. The shy girl had tears rolling down her cheeks, and the robust one mumbled comforts to her.
"You're sinning." he informed, voice firm. The shy girl whimpered, and the other turned to the man, a look of disgust in her e
BittersweetThe first time that I kissed you,Bittersweet2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Your lips were bittersweet
And the cold came through our clothes,
To make us shiver and shake.
I thought it felt good.
But it was still bad.
Bittersweet kisses in the cold.
When I hurt you,
And made you cry,
It was bittersweet then.
Knowing that it was for the best,
I pretended not to see.
You would be fine.
I would be fine.
It was just a bittersweet goodbye.
And bittersweet tears,
Trapped behind locked doors,
Knowing it was wrong.
The taste of you on my tongue

A friendship was balanced on the edge,
A jealousy eating away every time we mentioned
Those other girls.
Lists and lists, but not each other.
Of course we couldn't say the words,
But we wanted to.
Well, for me.
I don't know how you work.
I just know you're bittersweet.
Bittersweet apples, bittersweet oranges,
We talked too loud, not caring who heard.

RainbowsIs it because I held hands without flinchingRainbows3 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Or because I can't be the same,
That gives them the nerve to judge me
Without even knowing my name?
The devil isn't when you love someone
Despite the fact you both wear skirts
The devil is when a person hates someone
It's only a sin when it truly hurts
Listen to me hard, and take it in
You are not in the wrong when you hear
A bigoted heart say your love's a sin
That heart is frozen by an ignorant fear
If blue were simply the color blue
And a red rose can't be white
If I'm not supposed to be with you
Because somebody says it's not right
Then rainbows are colossal fuck ups

My Thoughts on...HomophobiaMy Thoughts on...2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
I think homophobia is the fear of simply accepting a compliment from someone of the same sex who may dress a little different than you or even give a sweet smile no one has ever given you before.
Homophobia could be jealousy striking as you peer across the lobby to two men or two women loving one another as you wish for yourself to have a lover for your own.
Homophobia is when your ex-girlfriend leaves you poor boy on the sidelines as she reaches for a girl who is there to love her and understand what she wants and needs.
Homophobia is when your ex-boyfriend leaves you self-centered chick trapped in your walk in closet as he leaves you for someone who doesn't mind the fact that he calls himself pretty and beautiful instead of handsome because his new man also agrees with his beauty.
Homophobia is just a phase that's been put on by something we all know as bandwagon or whatever because "everyone is doing it."

Heterosexuality: A sin.Hello, I'm straight.Heterosexuality: A sin.2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
And I am regularly asking God, why he'd decide to be so cruel as to make me this way? It isn't any fair. In a world where everybody is homosexual. It is so hard for me. They point at me and whisper behind my back. Calling me nothing more than an animal. An animal! They say that if God intended us to be mindless animals that he wouldn't have given us the minds or the ability to create life without performing animalistic sex acts. They call me unnatural. What's wrong with me? Why am I this way? I sometimes wish I were a lesbian. Or at least bi-sexual. Although those poor souls are often being picked on for not "making up their minds". I cannot help how I feel. I cannot help who it is that I fall in love with, cannot control their gender any more than I can control my own.
Oh God. If I could be a homosexual, don't you think that I would?? To fit in, to be normal. I feel so conflicted. All my life I have been bought up to know that homosexuality was the norm

"There's really no need," she murmurs, and then shoves me away, quickly reversing our positions, and bites my neck hard, "to be so violent."

Are you afraid of the dark?Are you afraid of the dark?2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Ever get the question: "Are you afraid of the dark?" I never get the chance to explain fully the answer that I give. My answer is: I, myself, have never once been afraid of the dark, just the things in it. Though, in darkness there is always light I am not afraid of that. I am afraid of people's darkness, I am afraid of the monsters that lurk and live there. Rapist's and murder's that do the things that they do because they enjoy it, they enjoy causing pain and suffering. To be honest, I am not afraid of them for myself but for others whether they be
Small or big,
Old or young,
Black or white,
Gay or straight,
Smart or dumb,
Fat or skinny.
My fear is far greater it is for this world as a whole. The world is going into a darkness that will never leave and evil things come from the darkness, evil thoughts, minds, and plans. The world needs light; it needs peace, and love. In other words people need to take a step back and look at what I see and others just like me.

As Fragile as a House of GlassYou are faking it again As Fragile as a House of Glass3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You know the one I mean.
When you pretend to be happy
You can only injure yourself.
Is that your reasoning?
The burden you bear is invisible but solid,
And its weight presses on everyone around you.
You cannot do this alone.
You are not Atlas.
You can ask for help.
The cherry red you spill
Tastes like iron to the ground
And licorice to the crowd.
Having a clear canvas
Does not mean you have to paint.
You are not a little Barbie.
Makeup will not give you
An unbroken smile.
You were not made to have skin
That barely surrounds your spine.
Hear the whisper as the air enters your body.
"You are alive!"
You are stronger than you know
And more beautiful than you would dare to believe.
You are here for a reason.
Nobody is born
Simply so they can die.
So do not step off the ledge in front of you.
You know it is not what you truly want.
Once Upon A TimeOnce upon a timeOnce Upon A Time2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is how the story goes,
With Sleeping Beauty and Rip Van Winkle
Silent in repose.
I was the Hansel to the Gretel,
I was Snow White's faithful dwarf,
Who watched her dreamily.
I was the clueless tribe of Lost Boys,
Itching for a fight.
I was the small girl in the window,
Wishing in the night.
I was the valiant prince,
Slaying every beast.
I was the benevolent ruler,
Forever keeping peace.
But one day I found out
Sleeping Beauty was diseased,
Died with Tetanus in her blood.
Her prince was a necrophiliac,
The magic kiss was a dud.
Hansel and Gretel were eaten alive,
Without a father who would care,
Snow White committed suicide;
The poison apple was a dare.
The Lost Boys were happy, it's true,
Until Peter married and moved away.
He now dwells in the suburbs
And never comes out to play.
The window girl was a mannequin,
Much too tall for her height.
The beasts were actually Puff,
A dragon trying to set it right.
My kingdom called me a tyrant

It doesn't matter if you're L, G, B, T, Q or straight,
What about equality, to love not hate?

But if you say God hates us, that's nonsense, absurd!

We're queer, we're here and ain't gonna leave.
Just deal with us liking the same sex,
If you're straight, it's fine, we give you respect..
But if you're a homophobic jerk,
We'll toy with you by giving you a wink and a smirk.
