I’m staring into your beautiful eyes,
As we sit away from the world,
What people say about us is only lies,
There’s nothing wrong with me and you.

Gently I press my lips up to yours,
Knowing we’ll never be treated the same,
But I won’t hide behind locked doors,
My love for you is completely pure.

I know you’re a girl, and I am too,
But if you were a boy it wouldn’t be better,
You know it’s true that I’m in love with you,
But we still aren’t treated like that’s so.

Hold me close and hold me tight,
We can’t marry or be treated fairly,
But please, let’s never give up the fight,
This moment is perfect and so wonderful.

But one day the world will see us for who we are,
And know that there’s nothing strange,
They’ll grant us marriage everywhere, near and far,
We’ll one day be considered the same.

Though as I wrap my arms around you,
I know we’re pure and more in love,
Than any other two ‘straight’ fools,
That’s all that matters between us.
I feel strongly for gay rights, and though I really don't have the talent to write it out well, this is my poem hoping that one day gays/bisexuals will be treated the same as anyone else.

This is really really beautiful!! Just so poetic and wonderful! I totally disagree. I think you wrote this fatastically! Truely I think this is quite good. And actually, I really loved how you only chose to use end ryhme sometimes because too much rhyming often gets to me, personally XD And I think the rhyme really added emphasis in the right places. The way that you would first start with a negative sentence at the beginning of a verse and then immediately contradict it with a positive, emphasizing the contradiction with the rhyme, really made the overall effect of your message more powerful. And I loved the way you started to draw it to a close on a hopeful note in the second to last verse. This is truly wonderful! :3 I really like it!!

Great job! It's so ridiculous that gay rights are even an issue. People can be so idiotic. I blame ignorance and religion.

I'm feeling the same way. My very best friend who I've known since I was three won't even talk to me since he found out I'm gay. I guess he thinks I'm gonna rape him or something.
I wish people just accepted us...

i love this poem. I feel the same. (I am a lesbian and I really love a girl, more in love than I could dream of with a guy.) When I think of marrying someone, I dont see a big wedding with a man. I see a quiet beautiful wedding with the woman of my dreams:)
