Falling

A river urging onward to the shore

The banks a prison stop it flowing free

The force so natural surging in my vein

Restrained I could not choose what I would be

My course was dammed you would not brook my dream

But I will flood convention and destroy

My rocky bed was not what you desire

And you no longer thirst that I enjoy

I am the sea my heart now saline washed

My ocean just a drop in your disdain

My flow won’t ebb so dry the pointless stream

My passing will allow you to remain

And if you ever think upon that spring

Just know I don’t regret the falling in

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

Being: Human

So take a little look at me

I wonder what your eyes will see

Perhaps my disability

Or all the things I cannot be

More than a sexuality

I’m deep in my complexity

With spectrum seen disorderly

So when you try to label me

Make sure it’s three dimensionally

In being human I can be

A mass of possibility

A friend to you potentially

So open up your eyes and see

There’s good in all humanity

Bond

So vulnerable and trust is thinly laid

On friendship that is criminally new

Potential is on either side displayed

Compassion in the little things they do

The darker truths are shared inside the bed

The needs and wants, desires to be met

But each one from the other will be fed

And nothing seems to be a problem yet

Together in the world no sense of shame

The public face protects the deep within

For love and lust are such a complex game

And who are we to judge or label sin

They tie and bond as closer they become

As if the heat can forge these two as one

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

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
