The World I Want To Live InI want to live in a world where no one has to come out. I want nobody to ever have to go through that emotional and physical torture. I want there to be no reason to come out. Because in this new world, it wouldn't matter! Nobody would care who another person loves, because it's love and none of their business!The World I Want To Live In in Emotional More Like This
I want to live in a world where no one cares. I want apathy, not acceptance. Because, there's no need for acceptance because there's no chance of rejection! There's nothing wrong with it, so rejection and persecution are logically ruled out. I don't want to hear this dialogue ever again "I'm gay." "Good for you!" Good for you? You don't hear "good for you" for being born with hazel eyes or being heterosexual. Honestly, there is no difference, stop perpetuating one! It's just like when a little kid gets hurt, you don't tell the kid they're hurt, because if you did, they would freak out. If we never recognize it as a difference, then there won't be one!

His soft golden hair whispers
His deep blue eyes implore
I long for his touch.
Being near him, without being with him
I will roll over and see his smile,
blissfully content as mine.

after years of denial,
repression and prayer.
A warm chill consumed my person,
as much as a contradiction as I feel.
I gasped at what I had done.
Why did I do it?
Why did I tell HIM??
Why am I even asking these questions?
For the first time in years,
I feel good.
I want to shout it from the top of this little town
and yet I feel more repressed than ever.
I realize the consequences of my actions,
of my words.

Happy for the first time
In my bliss,
the wrong words slip out

Midnight Ravings of Love and LossI feel nothing.Midnight Ravings of Love and Loss in Free Verse More Like This
I have no reason to go to sleep in the evening,
I have no reason to get up in the morning.
He did this.
He changed me.
He was at the center of the best moment of my young life
and when everything I knew came crashing down, with him to blame
he helped me rebuild.
His soft voice and vulgar humor sustained me.
His eyes, his hair, his body seduced me.
His laugh, his mere existence brought me happiness
I owe him everything.
He changed me.
He was my reason to go to sleep in the evening,
He was the reason to get up in the morning.
He was my world.
He forced me to feel
He made me feel love
Even if it was all one sided,
he made me feel.
I'm sure I'll miss those feelings
I know I'll miss him.
But, right now, I can't tell.
I feel nothing.
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 Letters in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
The Little GirlAll alone. Trapped.The Little Girl in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
In a world of strangers.
That's all she knows-
can't hide from dangers.
This God they've told her all about
doesn't seem to know
that inside she will scream and shout
begging to be let go.
She's helpless. Hopeless.
No one understands.
She's thrown into dark closets-
Shut up. Tied feet and hands.
Why is no one listening?
Doesn't she have rights, as well?
No. She's not the same as us-
So let's just damn her straight to hell!
She's just a scared little girl
who wasn't just like us,
She didn't fit in, in this world.
Ashes to Ashes. Dust to Dust.
Her love is not like ours so we-
will teach her that she is not free!
She's just a different little girl.
Her love must be a sin.
It's not as God intended-
It's give up or give in.
So outcast her and treat her wrong!
She must know, she can't belong!
This madness has gone on far too long!
for this sinning little girl...
She's corrupted. Tainted.
a sinner all her days.
