Cast out from society
For trying to find who we want to be
An outsider is all they see
When they look at you and me.
They only see what they want us to be,
Our differences, they won’t believe.
Our independence set us free
Cast us away from society
So we can be who we are and will always be.
Stuck inside my mind
Behind a two-way mirror
Visible from the outside
Through my glassy eyes
That watch the world pass by.
She approaches the vacant bed
On all of the late nights
For him to crawl in next to her
And wrap his arms around her
A warmth that only he could provide
He did this to himself
As she climbs inside
Pulls the freshly laundered sheets up to her neck
Where they lie
With a cold but comforting touch
I’m here for you
As she creates her linen cocoon
And drifts to sleep
