Favorite Quote:
Change in life is never easy, but you have to learn to deal with it because life doesn't slow down for stragglers.


The hidden lovers lay in beds of straw,
Concealed by the night, they are only safe for a time,
A time so short in fact, that their hearts are never satisfied,
To keep their love and lovers a secret, to live a lie,
To be ashamed.
It is the way the hidden live, heartbroken and lonely,
They are lovely in ghostly beauty,
The poor dears are too afraid to hold their partner's hand in the light,
To walk side by side; woman and woman, man and man,
They avoid the mocking gaze of predators that lurk near by

Some people of same-sex relationships hide their true feelings... one of my closet friends has struggled with self-acceptance for so long, I HAD to write this.
