Ashley_Smith_42677 Posted May 31, 2012 Hi guys, I'm new to this group. Below is something just as an official introduction if you will. Not new, but one of my favourites. I call it "Life on the Inside". Hope you enjoy. I so want to be able to be me. But how can I be me when me is not allowed? Friends, family; gleaming with disapprove, this notion in my head I should not have allowed. Now look at the shame I on them exude. Two men sharing a bed, unbiblical, not natural, even animals know better than to engage in this wicked ritual. It’s a sin, they say; don’t look at him that way. Someday you’ll come to your senses, visions of family, Doberman and white picket fences they imprint. Implying happiness ever after in heterosexuality solely exists. All my life has been devoted to the cause, putting you first, that way no more because in putting me last I’ve become a part of the past. Not now, memories forgotten, aint even trying to retrieve them. Pointless life living for reasons leaving my head shaking. You are the only one getting recognition. I’m stagnating in this position, not moving forward as I don’t dare, looking in the mirror, in the eyes of a coward I stare.
