Just hangin out
Do you know how easy life would be if I wasn’t gay?
Do you know how much I wish being gay was normal?
Or how I wish I could hold her hand in a public place, kiss her in the elevator without worrying about when the doors open?
Do you know how it feels to love one who others say you can’t?
Do you know how it feels to be punished for being who you are?
How wanting to share your life, how wanting to show off your love has only led me, us, to hatred from close ones?
Do you really know?
