Will

His smile it caught me mind it drew me in

Ideas profound that bubble to the top

Veneer with worry worn till paper thin

Yet in his eyes a hope that will not drop

So open as he talked of all he’d lost

The tears that glistened but were never shed

A warmth within that won’t allow the frost

The echo of so much he never said

I cannot right the wrong that he has seen

But he is more because what he knows

So many places we have never been

And hidden in the cracks a love it growsHe held my hand and everything was still

Our future is the everything we will

Testing Time

Snap

Something broke inside

Fear they cannot hide

Only for the ride

But

Now they need to speak

Answer theirs to seek

Into private peak

They

Took a little test

Putting minds at rest

Tidy lives were messed

Yet

Stranger turns to friend

Tale has happy end

Broke together mend

Same:Difference

Everyday is different

Everyday the same

Everyday my difference

Others seek to blame

One day I may falter

One day standing tall

One day this will alter

Barriers can fall

Everyone is special

Everyone unique

Everyone has questions

Answers that we seek

We can make a difference

We are much the same

We ensure that different

Isn’t cause for shame

Being

In being only his I am myself

Not sharing makes this specialty unique

I saw a man and stepped down from shelf

He answers all the questions that I seek

In being only him he is divine

Simplicity and strength within his smile

Imperfect yet we fit when we combine

I want this to continue for a while

In being only what we’re born to be

We bring such happiness upon our heads

And others disapprove or disagree

But why are they concerned about our beds

In being only human we’re the same

And love is not a source of guilt and shame

Dirty Money

Hello mister welcome to my city and my land

Want to go to college but my family is poor

Can you help me I will love you anything you want

You can even do that but it costs a little more

Sorry but I think you chose the wrong man for your scheme

You just want my money and you think I’ll pay for love

Let’s just say my eyes are open wide and now won’t shut

Pushy men whose empty hugging feels more like a shove

Understand that you are poor and I must look so rich

Culture difference maybe and I know that I am old

Cash for sex is dirty money I refuse to pay

You are not that pretty boy if I can be so bold

Money boys you’ll never know the ugliness I see

Lusting for the dollar but you never look at me

Youth

I see you standing there

You want to scratch an itch

But do not look to me

For I won’t queer your pitch

This game is not for me

Too big a fish for fry

I know you’re curious

But I’m not good to try

So pick a younger fruit

And taste a sweeter dish

For I am bitter now

And I won’t grant your wish

So find a better man

To lose yourself within

For I am far to old

To be where you begin

Equally

Do not follow me for I am lost

Lean on someone else because I’m weak

Made decisions never counting cost

I don’t have the answers that you seek

Walk with me but let that be a choice

Take a step or two here by my side

You like me within you have a voice

Shine the light you’re hiding deep inside

Maybe I can follow you instead

For a while I can just let it go

I have never let myself be led

Proud in my stupidity I know

Then he turned and took my breath away

Told me that he knew a different way

Did I think two men could ever be

Independent yet cooperate

Building partnership where both are free

Living in a single happy state

Nobody need shoulder all the blame

Sharing joy and hardships two as one

Different men whose views are much the same

Love and care when all is said and done

Live by codes that we ourselves create

Be outside the box yet not alone

Try with me I’m looking for a mate

Make utopia and call it home

Yes I said and saw that in his eyes

Both of us were equally surprised
