Name of Love

Form: Pentastich

Cast out by the clothes I wear
Shallow judgements of who I am
Because I wear jeans and not a dress
So many empty words to break my heart
Said in silence behind my back.
Why should I care what they say
When a lipstick smile is all I need
It is not me who can’t accept the truth
Yet I feel alone in a dark place
Suffocated by prejudice
You can’t understand my pain
The daggers of shame that pierced my heart
Falsehoods and frustration making it worse
Living behind barriers built of denial
With no room to breathe
I tried to change reality
Believing love belonged elsewhere
Not daring to be myself
I could not change my desire,
My love of her.
