You are the reason I don't want to die all the time.
When I am with you, life is worth living.
Time away from you is strange and full of pain;
When I look into your eyes
I can see how life has savaged you;
It's okay if you fall
I will be there to catch you
Anyone who would want to hurt you
Would have to kill me to do it;
I will never be able to pound words into lines
To match the velocity of your presence.
If I was gay, there would be no closet. You would never see the closet I came out of. Why? Because I'd have burned it for kindling by the time I was twelve... If I was gay, at this stage of the game—age 37, aging alternative icon—I'd be taking out ads.
