Summary

Have you been stared at? Have you been ridiculed all in the "name of good fun?" Have you been standing in plain sight without not truly being seen? This is for you. I am not a lesbian or bisexual/curious, but that does not mean that I cannot empathize with those who have to struggle just to be themselves.

The “eyes” have it

and I am left in the space between blinks,

that space of time that is just long enough to turn your head and forget.

Where judgment and willful ignorance collide.

You won’t see me because I am not as worthy of such a grace as the status quo.

You refuse to acknowledge me because you have voted me out of the society with your glares

and your jokes.

You deem it inappropriate to say it, but you scorn me in action.

And that is enough.

And it’s all okay because they say so, they insults are all accepted

because those who are accepted, laugh

And those in denial- trapped in their own closets of resentment- giggle.

But I have no say,

 I have no substance,

and I’ll have no peace,

In a world where the “eyes” have it.
