There is a story, that I dare not tell -
it often changes, still it never ends well
There was a boy, secretly in love;
but the secret just was not enough

He wanted to touch, hold and feel;
he needed his fantasies all to be real
But no one could understand,
the passion between a man and man

Love has no meaning; it is not true
if we can't be with who we want to
Part of me is questioning, when will it all truly end
and is the pain worth reliving, over and over again

Why does it matter who we love
when will you change your mental image of love
Why are we lying to hide what we feel
Stop the lies and hate; let's just keep it real

When we fall in love, there is no wrong to see
the simple fact is that it's just you and me
our heartbeats match each other to create a song
How dare others claim our love is wrong

Our song is beautiful, and we keep it on repeat
with such passion and grace, love touches all of us deep
Time begins to freeze, we can barely breathe
and we get all weak, weak in the knees

Love has no meaning, it can't be true
if we can't be with who we want to
Open your mind, just trust your heart
Right here and now is where the path starts

Why does it matter who we love
when will you change your mental image of love
Why are we lying to hide what we feel
Stop the lies and hate; let's just keep it real

I'm not ashamed that I can't resist, the sweet feel of her soft lips
Would it make any difference if she were a man and I were his Mrs,
Why must people hate; love touches every gender, age and race
We have to keep up with the pace, and the changes from day to day

We all deserve love in our own way,
No one has the right to discriminate
Everyone deserves love, it's a true fact
just sit back, relax; be ready for when love attacks

I loved this so much. I think it was when you said "when will you change your mental image of love?" That's a really true statement.. people who aren't gay do have a mental image of what a marriage and a relationship looks like. A gay couple to them looks like a friendship taken wrongly. I think this poem was beautiful. Thank you for it.
