Never made it as a grandson.
I couldn’t cut it as a boyfriend healing.
Tired of living like a half man.
I’m sick of trying to be someone else’s conception of appealing.
But when you step into the light, it
puts everything into perspective.
It’s not like you & the dark were well-acquainted.
Tomorrow, the planet could tilt off its axis & fall into oblivion
but the one thing that will never waver is my love for you,
shining brightly like the most reflective obsidian.
I don’t need anything else from you
aside from some piece of mind,
just for you to be who you are:
loving, gentle, selfless and kind.
That’s how you remind me
of what I could truly become.
We won’t win them all but
we can still win some.
