Same SexCotton candy hair,
Shiny green eyes
Melting my heart
A day at a time
Sent through the mail
Gifts for my girl
A pillow in return
A bit of distance
Soon to end
Holding me close
Something to look forward to
Craving your lips
Wanting your kiss
My bed is empty
Big enough for two
Buried deep under fear
Something I find hard to accept
Loving someone of the same sex
You tell me not to be afraid
The voice of an angel
Is oh so convincing
Your arms spread like wings
Warming my heart
To be who we are
A kiss from you
Something that is a trigger
My body would tremble
Maybe even shiver
You will be mine
Can last forever
Just like in the movies
And all the love songs
Your smile will be real
You'll get what you desire
Our bodies will be together
Like ours minds have been,
My beautiful lesbian lover

Don't cry alone.
Don't outcast yourself.
The little things do matter.
We're all flaws.

that I'm confused,
or that I'm looking for attention.
You call me a dyke,
a faggot, butch,
or even "it."
You tell me to accept that I'm a girl,
to get out of this "phase,"
and that I'm not who you knew.
You yell at me when I try to use the restroom,
when I'm walking down the street,
or when I go to school.
Is there a safe place for me?
I'm beginning to think not.
Not in school, at home, or in public.
I'd like to know why you hate me so much,
and why you tried to kill me.
You know, when you tried to hit me with your car.
Are you mad I didn't die?
Pissed I jumped out of the way?
If so, please tell me why.
I never did anything to you.
I don't know your name,
and you don't know mine.
You don't know anything about me,
except that I'm different,
from the other guys, at least.
Yes, I have breasts.
It's true that I get a period.
I also hate it all.
Believe me, I'd kill my top layer, too,
if given the chance.
It isn't me at all.

The MazeThe Maze2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Divide reality from illusion
Forwards is backwards
Separate belief from redemption
Success is failure
Where shadow crosses light
The ground meets my face
I'm surrounded by lies
The truth is too far away
Hope is this-
Faith is this-
Pain is this-
It's just another dead end / It's filled with emptiness
This is death's discontent / Resenting life's rhetorical existence
Fear is this-
Chaos is this-
Peace is this-
An infinite cycle mocks
Turn after turn
The timelessness cannot stop
As the same path is reborn
An unstable prisoner drowns
Lost inside my own encrypted mind
The way out can never be found
In this maze called “my life”
I Want to Kiss Her“I want to kiss her.I Want to Kiss Her2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Not because I want to feel the softness of her fair lips or the warmth of her breath as she exhales against me.
I want to kiss her because I can’t think of any other way to fully express the beauty that she is. I want her to know that I see her as perfect. That she is perfect.”

I wish I were real.
To have the courage to talk to people, to be socially active, and be capable of smiling every day.
I wish I were okay like everyone else seems to be around me.
I wish I could be happy but it seems impossible from where I'm standing.
I wish I could forget and move on like a normal person would.
I wish I could make people laugh, to go outside and enjoy the sun, and not be afraid of expressing myself.
I wish it weren't so hard to live day by day.
I wish I had no regrets.
I wish I were positive and fun.
I wish I had the talent of making friends instantly.
I wish I were not alone.
I wish I could see beauty when I look in the mirror.
I wish I could be smiling instead of crying right now.
I wish... I wish for so many things to come true but I'm depression's slave.
Shattered PeaceFather, I must speakShattered Peace2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
As the peace I’ve held, has reached its peak
The boy I was, is thought to have strayed
But in your blood he has always stayed
I cannot hold
For this heart of mine, grows certain and bold
Shackled to manhood I must confess
The fašade I’ve grown, was far from a success
The youth you’ve battered with heavy disdain
The life I was, told to fear and abstain
But fate was dealt so long ago
When the faith we held made it so
Young prosperity, empowered and free
Towering in confidence so all may see
But humbled by sacrifice, and hosts who may disagree
Father, do not turn away
These words I spill are here to stay
Shed your resentment as I’ve always dreamed
And restore the calm, as its always seemed
Still the seed you’ve showcased with vigor
Amidst these chasms, that sprawl even bigger
Still the child, you shielded from anguish
Christened a soldier, taught which enemies to vanquish
Father, you shall not despair
For this heart
ApartApart2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I couldn't see the consequences-
As I tried to trust my heart
I just couldn't resist-
The blind love that ceased my wars
Helping me let go of the struggles-
That I foolishly held in my hands
I freed the thoughts that quarreled-
Tears fell in order for me to stand
Truth can be the worst enemy
Lies can be the strongest ally
Harmony isn't immune to tragedy
Because you made a myth out of your apparent humanity
Mistakes can never be renamed! / Scars can never be erased!
Compassion is used as bait! / Two sides to every face!
A piece of peace is caged! / Watch the bridge burn away!
I'll desecrate the meaning of “passion”
You redefined my every moral
There will be no hesitation
I won't need anyone -anymore-
I ignored the risks-
Of handing over my hope
Killed by a kiss-
Turning my world to stone
I believed in your deceit-
And I fell too hard
My mind endlessly screams-

Just stopping to tell you
You've made an unlikely hero
Out of a passive agressive villain
Soooo thanks for that I guess
I can't get off the phone with family members
Can't see a sad friend
Can't let anybody get hurt
And not tell them I love them a thousand times or constantly check on them
And I think deep down
It's because I don't think I did either enough for you
I hope you know
I'm saving the world
Because I have spent every day
I spend every day
I will spend every day of my life
Wishing I saved you

Is all that I have left,
Memories of you have gone.
Stains are all that are left.
Permanent reminders to me that,
Every waking hour of my day,
I should have loved you,
Maybe then these stains would have washed away.
I killed something beautiful,
Stripped it naked and left it
In the cold to slowly freeze
Nightmares creep in the day light
And stab me in the back at night,
My screams echo in the moonlight,
All I can do is cry.
Your tea stain on the table,
I sit beside it and weep
With my new best buddy Smirnoff,
He helps me get to sleep.
I finally lost my job,
Now I’m living on the streets.
They said something about alcoholism,
I don’t know what they mean.
I’ve taken up the needle,
Helps me pass the time.
Got some new friends now
But every night I cry until I’m blind.
Just got out of prison,
People say I have no hope left.
I still scream at night, thinking about yo

A World Of Gray
The dull sun glares upon our society
On this meaningless morning of today
Reflecting each others hypocrisy
Transfixed on each others gaze
Think-headed and relaxed
Nonchalant and vexed
Practicing the art of being ungrateful
Portraying the act of an imbecile
Some say that it's just life's cycle
As they lie through convincing smiles
Feeding false information
Teaching faults from past generations
There's all different kinds of people
Who carry around different kinds of evil
My skin turns to stone! / My blood turns to ash!
My heart I disowned! / My sins drown in a mass!
My organs turn to dust! / My sight becomes colorless!
My thoughts start to rust! / My cruelty becomes careless!
I don't know where we went wrong
The future's history can't be undone
Though it can be prevented
Spare the guilt of countless resentments
We have to decide on the decent choice
And watch the noise that comes form our voice
The dim moon smiles upon our possibilities

Intersectionalitydrivers, don’t botherIntersectionality2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
to look out the side windows
when you get to the intersection
the police officer will direct you
press the pedal forward
to go in a straight line
the cop-compass knows all
Let your eyes follow his hands
because if you look away,
if you adjust your gaze,
start using your peripheral vision
you’ll realize that
these streets are not
one-way roads . . .
that your car has a secret magical power--
it can defy the compass
burn the lines of the map
because you can go
south to east
north to west
west to south
east to north
without earning a detention
and once you’ve seen that,
your eyes will wander more
you will see pedestrians walking
every one of them unique
but somehow all going
in small groups
in the same directions
playing follow the leader
in four teams
and if you look even harder
you will see
the unpaved portions of land
when the ground was free
not split into tarry factions
tricked into making war
with each other

Doesn't mean I see myself with a prince
Even though I plan on getting married
Doesn't mean it'll be a man, what about a woman?
I see the day I'm giving birth
A cute little girl
But what if she has two mommies?
Or my son has double soccer moms?
Which one of us will walk our girl down the aisle?
No daddy around
Would she be ashamed to say I have two moms?
Or would she be walking by our side with a smile?
It doesn't matter who I'll marry
Only that I fall in love
I want to find the one I can pamper
Whether their sex is man or woman

What is wanted and what is told

That I cannot think
I am a walking machine
That has given up freedom and thought
For the sake of a simpler life
That I hate based on color
On sex and religion
Unless it is popular
To say I love instead
That I am a murderer
A thief and a scoundrel
I witnessed the greatest crimes of our time
And stood by in silent admiration
That I hated because they told me to
I killed because I wanted to
And lied because I could
But worse, I let others do the same
That I'd do anything they'd allow
And everything they'd want
That I prefer to hate myself
Then for them to hate me

Why are people against a marriage?

One word... being asked by so many people
Without the answer we need...
Just because people don't understand our love?
Although it's not any different then with a straight couple?
