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.
unreachable by Danielle reach out your hand slowly, not quite aware moving quickly you surly wouldn't dare slowly growing closer to the fire we can no longer contain our desire the kids in the halls are starting to wonder your feelings and actions are pushing you under into their world of harsh words and hate any kind of hell that they could create your eyes are cloudy and your mind confused your body is weak and weary, your feeling used i feel great sorrow when i think of you we are both alone and scared... not knowing what to do when i am with you my troubles melt away but because of our surroundings our feelings must be put on delay so sit across the room and smile from a distance until it is safe to stop this harmful, fake resistance
