Warum…?

Why? BECAUSE gay men and lesbians are discriminated against in housing and employment AND because how we act is more important than who we are AND if we get harassed it's our problem AND if we get attacked we provoked it AND if we raise our voices we're flaunting ourselves Diesen Beitrag weiterlesen »

Dämmerung

Comes a Dawn

After a while you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning
And that company doesn’t mean security,
And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
And that presents aren’t promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open,
With grace of maturity, not the grief of a child.
And you learn to build all your roads on Today
Because Tomorrow’s ground
Is too uncertain for plans, and futures have
A way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn that even sunshine
Burns if you get too much.
So plant your own garden and decorate
Your own soul, instead of waiting
For someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure…
That you really are strong
And you really do have worth.
And you learn and learn and learn…
With every goodbye you learn.

Es macht nichts

Does It Matter? My father asked if I am gay. I said Does it matter? He said, No not really. I said Yes. He said Get out of my house. I guess it mattered. Diesen Beitrag weiterlesen »

Verliebte Idioten

Schnell ein Lächeln, wenn der andere herübersieht. Eigentlich ein wenig zu breit.

Gesichter erstarren zu Fratzen.

Weit dahinter der Wunsch nach Geborgenheit, echter Nähe.

Doch auf den Lippen nur Muskelspiel. Kämpfende Löwen in durchschwitztem Nylon.
