Note: The following is one of several poems I found on a website geared to gay and lesbian youth that I liked very much way back in 1996. As I have started rebuilding the blog, I want to include these poems. I tried unsuccessfully to contact the poets for their permission. If this is your poem, I would love to hear from you.
sometimes by Earl age 16 i understand sometimes but, why when i don't everyone else does? my friends sometimes tell me, i'm blind to what people do to me, sometimes. but there was one time, i can remember that someone made me feel loved. this is a sometime that i'll never forget i sometimes wish this time was all the time. this may have only happened one time, but at least it happened sometime.
