I am a queer reflection
of the contradictions of society.
They fetishize me
because I remind them of the truth.
As the distance between us widens
with the stretching of time
my heart softens
and I wonder how you been.
I like my body when it is with your body.
I like the familiarity of our limbs
the warmth and comfort they provide.
I like the feelings of ease
feelings some take for granted
feelings that are often denied to us.
Loveless systems breed repression
We are not suppose to exist
there is no language to help navigate our movement.
we fumble through the dark
building our own paths
finding our tongues along the way.
