Sitting across the dimly-lit table


It wasn’t always like this…


My paramour

I was enamoured by you

Those chocolate-brown spheres

Setting my soul ablaze

Blasting me into oblivion


Your smile

I could walk a thousand miles

Just for that smile


At inception

Reciprocating your love

Was incipient


“Absence makes the heart grow fonder”

Negative, captain

Absence makes you a goner


Can we just erase bad times?

And start again, one step at a time

Me and you falling into line

Just promise me

Promise me no regrets

Promise me that I won’t fret

Our love may not be the norm

But I want to wake up in the morn’

And inhale your breath

Making me higher than meth

To feel the stubble on your chin

Not to feel like it’s a sin

Make me feel like a king

My crown awkwardly placed

But you’ll adjust it

Kiss that face

And hold me tight

Straddle that waist


Sitting across the dimly-lit table

Then I step outside

I close my eyes

And let the rain trickle down my skin

That’s where it’ll all begin

    It’s writeups like this that make me mad when people, straight and gay alike, try to act like all gay people do is have sex, like we don’t love.

    We love. We love.

      Lol. What’s wrong with that? Asking for sex on the same day you meet a person, that is.
