Boy and boy
Girl and girl
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
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.
