Rainbow Flags

“Hi I’m Gisselle! What’s your name?”

“I’m izzy!”

“I think you’re really pretty can I have your number?”


The first interaction with the girl of my dreams.

You saw me through the sea of rainbow flags, 

And approached me. 

I was so terrified,

And yet so excited.


What would I tell my mom?


An exchange of phone numbers 

Led to many nights of conversations about our wildest dreams,

And our deepest aspirations.


What would I tell my friends? 


You gave me the courage,

You offered me the support,

You inspired me.

My dear, you live your life so free of other’s opinions.


What would I tell my boyfriend? 


I like girls.

You helped me realize that. 

And for that, I am forever grateful.
