Poem: It Works For Them

Unknown-1

You taught me I was unlovable

when I appeared a girl to this world.

My thoughts filthy, how could I be a gay man?

They taught me I was unlovable.

“Behave!”

they said.

*

You taught me I was unlovable.

My thoughts filthy, how could I want this beard?

They taught me I was unlovable.

“Behave!”

they said.

*

You taught me I was unlovable.

And when I took a razor to my skin, and cut till I bled,

they then locked me up, gave me pills to fix “it”,

and then they wondered why.

“Behave!”

they said.

*

You taught me I could not exist.

An androgynous gay man, no way!

Are you sure you are not really a lesbian?

They declared me Insane.

Who will love you?

“Behave!”

they said.

*

They are the insane ones.

It works for them.

This poem dedicated to: Duran Duran – Come Undone

 

Lyrics to: “Come Undone” By Duran Duran

Mine, immaculate dream made breath and skin
I’ve been waiting for you
Signed, with a home tattoo,
Happy birthday to you was created for you

(can not forgive from falling apart at the seams
Can not believe you’re taking my heart to pieces)

Oh, it’ll take a little time,
Might take a little crime
To come undone now

[Prechorus:]
We’ll try to stay blind
To the hope and fear outside
Hey child, stay wilder than the wind
And blow me into cry

[Chorus:]
Who do you need, who do you love
When you come undone?
Who do you need, who do you love
When you come undone?

Words, playing me deja vu
Like a radio tune I swear I’ve heard before
Chill, is it something real
Or the magic I’m feeding off your fingers?

(can not forgive from falling apart at the seams
Cannot believe you’re taking my heart to pieces)

Lost, in a snow filled sky,
we’ll make it alright
To come undone now
[Chorus]

(can not forgive from falling apart)
Who do you need, who do you love
When you come undone?
(can not forgive from falling apart)
Who do you need, who do you love?
(can not forgive from falling apart)
Who do you love
When you come undone?
(can not forgive from falling apart)
