I'll Talk To You Later

Mom, I’m gay

I’ll talk to you later.

I’m sorry (but not really),

I’m in love with a girl.

She is stunning,

My heart is full.

 

Mom, I’m gay

I’ll talk to you later.

When you find out I will die,

At the hand of your disownment.

You will hate me,

For something I cannot change.

 

Mom, I’m gay

I’ll talk to you later.

Past winter spent falling,

Last spring, spent in love.

The way she looks at me,

I think she’s it.

 

Mom, I’m gay

I’ll talk to you later.

“You are not allowed talk to her;

She is a lesbian.”

Choking on sobs for endless nights,

Through partition, we persevered.

 

Mom, I’m gay

I’ll talk to you later.

Escaping at 4 a.m,

Sloppy kisses under the sunrise.

Stupid boy with messy hair, I wish I’d never met you.

You’d Influenced  me to tell  her, “I don’t know how I feel.”

 

Mom, I’m gay

I’ll talk to you later.

A heartbroken summer, beginning with the words;

“I want my stuff back.”

And yet I healed, brought back from dust,

Revival of the cloud girl.

 

Mom, I’m gay

I’ll talk to you later.

After 2 months of silence, she returned to my heart,

Keeping the streaks of my friend, I asked you how you were.

Kindred spirits in love with each other,

I know she’s it.

 

Mom, I’m gay

I’ll talk to you later.

She’s always been it,

She is my universe.

I cannot comprehend how you’ll react,

With anger and malice and resentment.

 

Mom, I’m gay

I’ll talk to you later.

You’ll be missing out,

Because my future is bright!

I hope you want to come to my wedding,

But if not, your loss.

 

Mom, I’m gay

I’ll talk to you later.

I will be happy with or without you,

Harsh, but true.

I love you but I won’t break,

I will never deny myself for you.

 

Mom, I’m gay

I’ll talk to you later.

I’m sorry (but not really),

I’m in love with a girl.

She is stunning,

My heart is full.
