This is about gay pride. My best friend Ari is bi, and my other friend Gabe is gay. I just wanted to write a poem for them, and also hopefully about other gay's. I know that it's not much of a drastic even anymore, but this is how I feel. I'm sorry that you have to stay and go through all that silence; I feel your pain.

The silence hits you like a bomb,

A quake of fear beneath your feet.

It’s like,

Everything around you has just frozen.

Time.

It seems to have no meaning anymore.

Your parents treat you differently,

Not quite being able to understand.

Your forced into an outcast life of betrayal and fear,

And suddenly everything turns black.

Nobody.

They’ll never know how you feel.

They’ll shun you out,

Not,

Protect.

They think that their sympathy will turn into hate,

And they’ll turn into someone that they’d never dreamed of becoming.

Inside the heart,

Love.

Accept the unaccepted.

Don’t turn them away.

This silence.

It echoes a million times off these walls.

It burns the fire in your eyes.

It picks up the siren,

Deafening.

This silence is.

Nobody will ever know how you feel.

Forever,

This pain,

This silence,

It will echo,

It will linger,

It will burn.

Nobody will ever know how you feel.

Desperate to fit in a world that doesn’t want you,

Inside an atmosphere that pushes you out.

Hold out a hand,

Be that person to hold onto something and not let go.

Kill,

The silence.

This silence hits you like a bomb,

A quake of fear beneath your feet.

Everything around you has just frozen,

And nothing will ever be the same again.

Nobody will ever know how you feel.

Nobody.
