celebrating and creating our own LGBT history

day eighteen

Love

by Butch Barbie, Liverpool

 

 

I love my dog

and my cat

my Mum

my friends

my gay family

 

I love being in Love

even when She breaks my heart

As does happen

To me

Regularly

 

But I fall again

Into that wonderful abyss

the butterflies

the stomach flips

the twang in the groin

the ache

the desire

the yearning

the wanting

the panting

the kiss

The Release!

 

I escaped from Love

for many years

She distracts my brain

 

Just when I forgot

about Love

WHAM!

She snuck up on me

 

Remember Me?

 

I do.

 

You hurt me

again and again

But I did miss you

I am glad you are back

How long will you stay?

 

OH!

 

That wasn’t long.

Where is my dog

and my cat.

 

Hello Mum

Hello friends

 

I love YOU.

 

LOVE.
