I’m staring into your beautiful eyes,
As we sit away from the world,
What people say about us is only lies,
There’s nothing wrong with me and you.

Gently I press my lips up to yours,
Knowing we’ll never be treated the same,
But I won’t hide behind locked doors,
My love for you is completely pure.

I know you’re a girl, and I am too,
But if you were a boy it wouldn't be better,
You know it’s true that I’m in love with you,
But we still aren't treated like that’s so.

Hold me close and hold me tight,
We can’t marry or be treated fairly,
But please, let’s never give up the fight,
This moment is perfect and so wonderful.

But one day the world will see us for who we are,
And know that there’s nothing strange,
They’ll grant us marriage everywhere, near and far,
We’ll one day be considered the same.

Though as I wrap my arms around you,
I know we’re pure and more in love,
Than any other two ‘straight’ fools,
That’s all that matters between us.

disgusting girl. it just is not right no matter how you describe it in a poem, it will never be right. it is gross digusting and wrong. this should not be allowed anymore, i cant take seeing so many gays and lesbians around me. you know you might win your fight, but that just makes the world a much more dirtier and confusing place for children and others to live in. if this continues populations wont grow because everyone is gay or lesbian, and therefore that means an end to human population if what you want is accomplished. do you really want that?
