Facades

Form: Free Verse

Removing the fake facades yet
keeping our mouths shut
not revealing the shame of it
in case
being self offends
in case
love offends
in case
someone else gets hurt by love
so we make love in the shadows
hidden away like a dirty secret
for they see love as dirty yet
their love is pure
a special thing for the world to celebrate
yet they judge me as dirty
my love somehow defiled
because I’m queer
yet I embrace my love as beauty
as sweet as the tenderest kiss
that fills my heart with bliss
