Boy and boy

Girl and girl

Looked down upon for being different-
For not being like you.
Why should you have a say in other's lives-
You shouldn't but somehow, you do.
You are the voice inside, telling us we are wrong

(Leaving us with a guilty conscience)
You are the tear forming in our forbidden lover's eyes

You are the nasty words that slap us in the face

You are the doubt and denial in our minds

Denying the reality of our longings

Fire burning once bright

Creating the smoke that blurs the sight

Of our forbidden lover.
