My one friend said he heard of a kid who commited suicide due to being bullied for being gay. His sister was then teased by the same kids and was told that they were happy he was dead. So this poem is for that boy.
I knew a boy
Couldn't quite get his name
But I think it was Hurting
Cuz his life was the same
And his face was bruised
So was his heart
And I couldn't understand why
Cuz he had a kind heart
He cries from inside
I wish I could hear
And I wish someone would tell him
It's ok dear
But the kids at school
Or should I say bitches
Broke down his soul
Like some evil witches
And before he could die
To the will of his own hands
I wish I could say
Hurting hold my hands
Cuz if I really knew him
I would at least try
To make him feel special
And not want to die
And save him from those monsters
Who call themselves children
Or worse yet
Even call themselves Human
If only I knew you

What does it mean to love?
Is it a toxin, slurring your thoughts?
Does it change your actions thereof?
It is just another battle to be fought.
It is hard to explain,
Though many have tried.
Love drives some insane.
And others it enlights.
What if you love the same gender?
None truly understands.
Except for those who do render
This strange sort of love's demands.
Love is a gift.
That is truly the answer.
Gay, straight, or both lift
Your head high as you remember.
By Eric Alexander
Because of I didn't tell you
You stopped talking
And you felt blue
He was my heart
He rocked my world
He's a boy
I'm not a girl
I hadn't shared my secrets
Locked away in my heart
I hid in the darkness
I'm just at the start
Now all is out
You know that I'm gay
Today I stand
With pride today
I'm out of the closet
Into this world
A guy in love with a guy
I'm not a girl
I sick and tired
Of all homophobe ways
It hurts my heart
I live in this today
I give this out
To all my gays
Put pride in yourself
With me today
I speak for us all
We are part of the future
We'll make it I do believe

Goodbye Andrew Gott,
Though I did not know you
Your life has touched mine
May you fly in heaven;
As the angels on high
You are in paradise
A life a reflection of the grace of God
You are no longer suffering
And you live on high!
You touched those around you
With your smiling face
I wish I would have known you
And called you, "Friend"
May God be with your family
In this time of grief
This I know
God's grace is sufficent for thee.
One day in heaven
We will meet again
No more heart aches
No more pain
Until then…Rest in paradise!
I felt I had lost him
But he was not mine to lose.
Who am I, to force him to choose?
‘tween forbidden love, and “social right”
I can’t let him go now
He’s taken hold of my heart
He shot within like a poison dart
And took control like a thief in night
I turn my back
And walk away with head held high
And tell myself I will not cry
But cry I do, with tears so light.
I see him there
He looks at me and my heart is ablaze
But I try to look like I’m not fazed
But his smile shines so bright
Breaking in pieces
He kissed me sweet and walked away
Now I live life day by day
Trying to clear my clouded sight
Alone in the world
Without someone to hold
Now my life is deathly cold
My love was stripped by “social right”.
Someday my burry eyes will be clear
Someday a boy will be able to go to prom in a dress
And won't be call queer
Someday One's gender won't be seen as a curse
Someday boys holding hands won't be perverse
Someday being in love won't result in pain
Someday one who's gender doesn't match their sex won't be
seen as insane
Someday saying you're bi won't end in you crying
Someday the fact you're a lesbian won't end in dying
Someday only thing stopping sight will be bad eyes
Someday I'll help ends those horrid lies
told to the world.
Someday what's normal in the corral reefs will be up here
Eytan has no clue that that Leah and me have been frenching every evening
Leah tells him she’s in school but instead it’s him who’s learning a lesson cause
Eytan has no clue, Eytan has no clue, Eytan has no clue
Leah and me are hooking up while she still has him on a leash like a little puppy
Where’s a real man when you need one?
Cause all Eytan will ever be is a wimpy little wannabe
Oh,can’t you see Leah needs a real man?
Eytan has no clue,Eytan has no clue,Eytan has no clue
What a real man is?
Look he’s crying like the little girl he is
Now Eytan has a clue or should I say Ariel is swimming in an ocean of tears
What can I say ? Leah ,Where in the world did you get this loser
Now Eytan has a clue! Oh Boohoo!
Behind This Smile
by northnet (04 Nov 10)
For many years, I’ve hid behind a smile,
Little did you know that I’ve known for a while.
Through my life I have been ignored,
My self-esteem is now running sore.
You don’t know my darkest past,
That’s put me in a mental cast.
From a distance, I will stare,
You don’t wonder, so I don’t dare.
Behind this smile lies the pain,
You’d think it’s crazy, it’s not a game.
You talk around and say “That’s Gay”,
You wouldn’t think twice either way.
But I’m not deaf, and I can hear,
The reference bringing on the tears.
I laugh along but can’t you see,
That reference is a stab for me.
If you’d look close, then you would know,
Behind this smile, tears will flow.
