It's Just love

The stains of blood
On carpets
Are made by you
Carving flesh butterfly's
Into the delicate parts of skin
To release the hate
and feel the pain
To the people who called you the REAL F word
To the hallway wonderers and stoners claiming the words
"That's so gay"
But in fact it's only love

When I see you in the halls of our school
I spot the scars
On the wrist
The arms
And though I can't see them I know the legs are also
Your not in roller derby any more
You have a girlfriend
And I have never told you my secret
But I still love you

Though out the years
The little kids become big
We try new things
And get drunk
Deep inside were all still
That tiny child
Crying to her mother
Over a paper cut
The wonders and stoners and every other person who does not support the LGBT community can go F*** themselves
For what they have done
Eventually the
" that's so gays" and words like f** will fade away
It's all just the same love

When I dream
I find myself in a
Coffee shop
Someone in front of me
Has a bag I like
I poke them in the shoulder
And they turn around
Love at first sight
Short, messy black hair
I take her hand
Love at first sight
I've only just had the pleasure to meet you
Because its only just love
When the world wakes up
And realized
That it's the most beautiful thing
That it's only just the same love

This is great. Reminds me a bit of "Same Love" by Macklemore.  Great use of emotion. I have a friend who struggles with transgender stuff, and so this really relates to her. If she had a computer, I would send her a link. But it's wonderful.

I like how you make the reader aware of what the LGBT community faces. Even though I don't view it the same way, I definately agree that there is way to much hate and snide comments towards others because of their sexuality.   I like how you said "through out the years, the little kids become big, and deep inside were all still that tiny child crying to her mother"
