A poem about unrequited feelings and the occasional resurfacing of memories that come with it.
There’s a lot of wondering and a lot of waiting. I understand what you might be feeling. I know that you’re biting your tongue, and always waiting till you make them uncomfortable.
Give me something to leave behind
A sour candy kiss in the theater
Worse things have made me lose my mind.
A pair of unlikely friends caught in the pouring rain unpack a girl’s perhaps undeserved reputation.
A poem about the way our institutions and some people fail to protect young trans people and profit off their deaths in different ways, while the people who loved them are left to deal with the actual grief.
“If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense.” Leviticus 20:13. Such a verse reverberates emphatically in my soul and has all throughout my life.
