I've Never Felt Broken
Today I felt pride,
I felt it from the heart,
When the realization came in a heartbeat.
I know now why it took me a long time to make friends,
Because I wasn't attracted by their looks,
I was attracted by their hearts and personalities,
And it takes a while to know those.
I know now why I get a nose bleed,
whenever there's porn or a sex scene,
or why I even get a little awkward when I get a partner in health class.
I know now why I'm so, well, me,
Because I never cared about my looks,
only good grades, loyalty, and dreams.
I felt pride when I realized that I'm an asexual,
And that I've never felt broken,
And that I never let anyone influe
A dreamer in winter; she stares at the sky
No snow falls, but the snow is a weight in the dark
Night sky, ever looking for answers
Among the stars, the silent few who beckon
Listen, dreamer, listen, they cry
Listen, and wait, and be comforted
Dear dreamer; she turns away
Neither looking forward, nor backward
Nor inward, but outward
And yet all the omens and fortunes in the world
Have nothing to offer her
Truth eludes even starlight
Truth eludes the highest angels
Dreamer, what hope have you?
Just a glimpse of the truth is her prayer
To the dark; just a notion is all she desires
The stars in their dance for a moment
