Waste.You are a waste of creation,Waste. in Free Verse More Like This
For you made the decision,
to be gay.
How dare you betray me.
Don't you dare look this way.
You are in the wrong.
What a disappointment you are.
You read the Good Word.
You try your hardest to live God's way.
Following your heart,
Is the wrong way to go.
How dare you try to be happy.
Your sin is so horrid.
Not even God could forgive.
For you love another woman.
You are better off dead.
Praying won't save.
Living as a Christian won't matter.
It's not like you stole or committed murder.
There is no accepting,
For the thing that you are.
Just A Phase... Maybe Not.This might be a phase,Just A Phase... Maybe Not. in Free Verse More Like This
It'll only last a week,
Just like anything else,
It will surly pass.
I'll go back to living,
Life I thought I hated.
That's just a phase,
Just be a little curious.
That's what all my friends say.
They make me think,
That what they say is true.
That I'm not suppose to be this way;
Its just a quick phase of life,
That will lead me down that right way.
They might be right,
I might be wrong.
But there's one problem
With this just being a phase.
But with years of lying about it,
With years of hiding myself.
I know this isn't just a phase.
Its something much to real.

His deep blue eyes implore

Remembering the feel of his shirt,
the sound of his laugh,
the roll of his eyes when Michelle Bachman opens her mouth,
the security of his embrace,
the warmth of his unique love,
the fact that he misses me too.
That's the killer.

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!

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.

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.

IT GETS BETTERTo all those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or queer, to all those who are young and old, to all those who are being bullied and think that your life is just absolute hell, I'm here to tell you something, something that I think all of you should know: IT GETS BETTER.IT GETS BETTER in Spirit Day More Like This
Like many of you, I was shocked and devastated about the tragic suicides that took place in Fall 2010 and again this Fall 2011. These bright young students were constantly picked on and bullied severely because they were gay or perceived as gay. I know some of you who read this are probably saying right now, "Oh, you know how kids are, they can be so cruel, kids are going to bully regardless". Those who have said it or are even thinking those words as I am speaking, you know who you are. I am letting you know how bad this hurts me as a student who once was looking for the support she never got when she was bullied and harassed in middle school. But I'm getting way off topic. This isn't
On Gender Crisis: It gets better.I was born female.On Gender Crisis: It gets better. in Emotional More Like This
I have all the female pieces.
My life was lived in denial of my emotions; a blur of pain, scars, blood, pill bottles, good times...and the opposite.
When I was younger, it was all too confusing for me to focus.
Sometimes I'd forget to breathe.
Sometimes I'd pass out from the crushing anxiety.
I don't blame my 'confusion' on my upbringing. I was born this way.
I was gay. I love a woman.
I was straight. I love a woman.
The very same woman.
I will always love my Sora. Not for one second of my life will I ever stop breathing for her. Ever stop thinking for her. Ever stop creating .for her.
She is worth my world; and more.
I'm stumped now. Between two seemingly obvious options.
I can't see why it matters. But our world seems to function around pronouns and sexist ideals.
I'm not here to declare my gender.
Because I firmly believe I do not have one, and do not need one.
I have said myself to be transgender in the past, but I discover now; tha

of shattered shards of chandeliers--
once a well-hung girl, poised above the dinner table
where vultures ate and ate and ate
her soul until she was nothing more
than the fragments of an empty shell.
she had hung in very long,
and she had played very hard,
for she was hard; she was crystal, dark crystal
to hide the scars and burns of past memories
and fatigue and stories that no one wants to tell
in the shadows and darkness.
held she the power, the ambition to change the world,
but the world changed her and those scars
and maybe she saw in black and white
like the early watchers,
or maybe she saw in technicolor
but if she did
it was more red, black, and white.
it surprised her how the girl's name
came so easily to mind
but rolled so cautiously off her tongue.
she liked to let it roll off,
let it wallow in the heat of her mouth
before escaping with sound
into the harsh cold world.
in her was the devil;
in her was an angel,
