Sexual Identification.

"Lesbian" "Gay" "Bisexual"

Why must we label our love to be conceptual

when society's judgemental bile is perpetual

and diminishes our affection as less than exceptional?


Terms of sexual identification 

has torn down our barriers formed through unification

causing hate and chaos throughout the nation

shooting bullets through churches and chances of rejuvenation.


How can some forget that love will always trump hate

everyone is deserving of bliss whether gay or straight

A time will come when we unite and clean the slate

that appoints human beings to a "predestined fate"


Where I, as a female, can swim in the depths of her ocean eyes

and can mellow myself through the vacancy of her echoing cries

Just as I can dance to his pounding heartbeats through summer's sunrise

and kiss his stubbled lips that make my tears flow yet crystallize.


Despite my support system and circumstance,

my heart still aches for those who's hearts can no longer dance

from attacks deemed from hatred and blinded glance

clouded over with the standardized interpretation of "romance".

    Ah, it's time to dance, it's time for romance. Brilliantly expressed between the covers of love. Our hearts lead the way to whoever it you fall in love with. Sexual preferences are interesting and bravely committed to fimish the dance. Great writing.


    This is absolutely superb....It kept my FULL attention from the first word to the last...and the amount of content that you actually covered was amazingly done...I, myself, am a gay "man", but I have always identified with a female role since I was a little kid...Now, half way through my life, I have experienced just about everything in the gay, I plan to have the operation to become a full on female...I have the fashion sense, and I CAN ALREADY EWALK IN MY HEELS...ll I am also a performer...I sing, dance, etc...anhyway, enough about me...back to you...This was absolutely of the best I have read on this site over the past 2 years....please keep writing and posting...I would love to hear more from you with that kind of range...xxxooo
