You're #1 In My Book!

First a brief poetic intermission:

If your first name rhymes with pig this is for you.

If you last name rhymes with "Failing" this is for you.

If you doesn't have a Grandma, but instead just has a Nana,

You got it...  this is for you!


Okay, now that that… Read full post »

A Poem for the Pope!



This Poet's Creed

Religions where -
Dancing is a sin, but calling children abominations isn’t.
Protests against queers at a straight soldier’

Dear Democrats: You've Lost Me!

Yup.  I'm kind of slow, I guess.  It took me till now to process my thoughts regarding the latest betrayal by the Democratic party. 

Once again they betrayed the LGBTQ Community, along with their lap dogs in the Human Rights Campaign, through their absolute laRead full post »

Why do you hate us?





Dear Voters,


Why?  Why the hate?  We haven’t done anything to you!  You aren’t even willing to try to get to know us.  Why?


I know that many of you hate us because you’ve been told to by your church. Read full post »

Fear of Shadows

by Safe_Bet©


Like a shadow lost in the dark,
I wonder if she is happy
and with whom.

Self righteousness cuts
like a rusted razor;
successfully severing,
but with such pain.

I keep my eyes open
for the signs of the apocalypse,
as I live in fear
of intertwined silhouettes.

Arrrgh! No More Lies, Mr. President!!!


He took our queer money and he took our queer votes. In return, we took his promise of change. He got elected with our votes and money, but he hasn’t kept ANY of his promises to the LGBTQ Community.

Seasons of my Love



My love’s eyes sparkled like drops of icy water

Tumbling into the clear pool of her love

Like the first buds of spring, my heart responded

My adoration for her grew just as quickly 


Warmed by the joy of my love’s sunny smile

I sense the heat ofRead full post »

Old man spilled his bag in front of the store;

Frog Kiss


Like a princess who kissed frogs,

just because she found them beautiful;

my life is for few.


As a square peg in a world of rounds;

the rare fit is that much sweeter.

Fewer chances; greater risks.


The kiss did once work magic.

No prince appeared to carry me away,
