My love

My love is like an empty place

With room for me to breathe

I’m never crowded in his space

For I’m allowed to leave

My love is like the winter air

When blooms first sense the spring

And in a life that was quite bare

Are flowers blossoming

My love is strong enough to be

A bond to keep me near

And yet I feel completely free

Just knowing he is here

Communication Breakdown

Who are you forgetting me

Message in bottle sent

Thought like waves across the sea

Written words you never meant

Where are you belonging now

Sharing all I gifted you

Want to stop my longing how

Changing isn’t what I do

Why did constant come to end

Can forever never last

Like a book to freely lend

Future from disrupted past

Question you don’t give your word

All the silence I have heard

Fall

I teeter on the edge yet never fallen

A streetcar named me liar as I looked

I live my life a stoic close to heaven

Pretending that emotion has no hook

Perfection is not something deep and dirty

And marble hard will never yielding give

So life will never touch and never hurt me

For I am truly not allowed to live

If only I was carved into perfection

But I am not statue from a stone

I am weak and I have sought protection

And look me so cold and so alone

I want to reach and hold but I am frightened

I wonder who would catch me if I fall

To feel my heart just once a little lightened

To answer to the voices I hear call

Homo Phobia

I twist and turn but cannot fit

No space in tiny mind

So flexible yet won’t admit

A place not mine to find

And so I sprawl and own it all

Create the man I am

A king who lives beyond the wall

The flood without a dam

I’m uncontained and unrestrained

No cramping of my style

Phenomenon quite unexplained

You cannot cloud my smile

I twist and turn contortion was

Creator of the new

But out of all proportion was

The hate I felt from you

Somewhat Queer

Happy when you’re here

Good to have a friend

Feeling somewhat queer

Which will never mend

Drink or maybe two

Propping up the bar

Fun I have with you

Near and yet so far

You cannot be mine

Love but not like that

Now is never time

Leaves my ego flat

Straight the narrow path

Free of any kink

Not my other half

Hearts are not in sync
