Everyone can see.
Their skimming eyes heave.
They think you can be.
You're just hiding.
Covering your flaws.
But no one could believe.
They shut eyes with no empathy.
You boast yet cower.
But they no longer watch.
Again, you talk.
Pride edged again.
Eyes turn, anger and glee.
You Almighty God.
Their eyes focus to see.

I asked, "Isn't this where you put dead people?"
"Then why am I here?"
"You're dead, of course."

So what that we're gay?
So what that only you are my rock?
So what we're both women?
This world is cold and short minded
Trapped in a box
Trapped in what's 'right'
While love cannot be labeled
So yes, I'm gay
Yes I'm married to a woman
Yes, we need eachother in this life
Yes, we are eachothers soulmates
I can't descibe how it feels
To wake up next to her
Talk to her, hugging her
Just being with her makes my life worth living
We're just like any other straight couple
Difference is.. we're two girls
The love is the same
The bond between us is just as strong
So you tell me
Why being against this love?
Why are people against a marriage?
Why are people against us?
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?

Sometimes, she would tease me
Lean over and say
"When are you getting a boyfriend?"
I would dig fishhooks into my mouth
Give her my best lying smile
And say something to the effect of
When we would go out together
When she would eye the passing men
Lean over and say
"All the good men will be gone soon!"
But my eyes never left her
Never strayed from the curve of her shoulder
Never stopped thinking what we would be like
Never stopped seeing her
Sometimes after church, with the older ladies
We were urged to start looking
For a good, Christian, man
But I always had trouble
Looking away from her dress
When Valentine's Day came
I gave her rainbows, colored chocolate
She smiled, and gave me caramels
As we were friends and nothing more
She was kind when I met her
Soft, considerate, radiant in her comfort
She was beautiful and warm
Beautiful, but she would hate me
If I told her what waits in my heart
She would call me disgusting
She would run away

I have determination in my bright blue orbs.
My smile can calm even the strongest tempest.
My friends are nothing short of amazing,
and my family...well, they are some of the most
supportive people I have in my life.
I'm going to make it big. Have a family,
live in a big house.
I'm going to marry my princess, have money
I'll be happy.
And my children will look up to me,
so will my wife. I'll protect them,
I'll be their role model.
I'll be the grandpa my grand kids love.
I'll live a long life, until it's time for me to go.
And even then, I'll be smiling down, not ready
to really depart from happiness.
I'm a seventeen year old boy,
and my tears stain my ruffled jacket.
I can't smile like I used to, but I try.
But I'm still so lonesome.
Where were the friends that understood me?
Where was the family that supported me?
They try, but I can't let them in.
My future crumbles, my wife vanishes,
my children...their children, drown in the
