“The only queer people are those who don’t love anybody.”
― Rita Mae Brown

I stand in front of mirror

facing a lie

draped my body in clothes

surrounded by a deception

No mirror can reveal 

the truth my soul is crying for

No reflection is ever going to do justice

to the moments I'm breathing for

I just want to tear apart my self

from limb to limb

to show the world

what I really feel within 

I'm so tired

of living life like a fraud.

“The first and worst of all frauds is to cheat one’s self.” Pearl Bailey
