No one's there to catch me,
but they love to watch me fall.
You'd think they never saw a sight
that was so beautiful.

They all just stand there frozen,
every man, woman, and child.
They are suspended in that moment,
their minds bewildered and beguiled.

I catch glimpses of their faces
through pieces of my hair,
and I realize in that moment:
None of them really care.

They watch my final moments,
these unfeeling friends of mine.
My body hits the earth,
and they return to their daily lives.

Straight Americans need... an education of the heart and soul. They must understand - to begin with - how it can feel to spend years denying your own deepest truths, to sit silently through classes, meals, and church services while people you love toss off remarks that brutalize your soul. ~Bruce Bawer, The Advocate, 28 April 1998

I really like this even though its kinda sad. ((Check Contest on the Forums. I posted results for the romantic short story contest by xxdarkalleyxx, me.))
