He traced my features softly
As he looked me in the eyes
With just a single kiss
He took me by surprise

I had known him for a short time
But to him there a spark
We swayed to soundless music
As we danced around in the dark

Unafraid of the world around
We walked away from the night
There we stood in plain view
Letting my family see the sight

They didn't jeer or curse
But excepted who we were
I couldn't ask anything more
Than what had just occurred

Minus some embarrassing rules
Coming out wasn't all that bad for me
The burdens have been lifted off
For once, I feel free
