Flashback – Unicorns

You recline on the couch,

declining into the ground,

positive that you can patch this up,

presenting your wife with a plaster.

The plaster is petite,

rainbow mane,

your very own unicorn,

ready for anything,

adventuring with anyone,

and she’ll leave a trail of light,

across your life,

seducing smiles back onto broken faces,

that were cracked by boredom,

the monotony of monogamy.

You still don’t talk to your wife,

you don’t acknowledge that night,

that you have both thought of often,

but cannot let escape into the room.

You hide behind your unicorn,

you both enjoy your unicorn,

but you don’t accept that your unicorn,

is not a sex toy,

and not a replacement for couple’s counselling,

but she is a person.

Your unicorn is a person.

New Music – Future Love

Here is the next part of my series of Pride Month covers. Today, I covered Lady Gaga’s Future Love, because Lady Gaga is not just an ally, she is a bisexual woman and a valuable part of the LGBT community.

Biphobia and bierasure often means that people like Lady Gaga get forgotten when discussing LGBT people in the spotlight, so I just wanted to remind everyone that Lady Gaga is 100% valid and also the greatest songwriter of her generation.

Flashback – Brandon Teena

Life tried to speak,

another existence,

decades of denial,

that decayed,

until he was standing,

saying his name,

under the starless sky,

hushed and hopeful,

that the world would echo back,

and suddenly,

the sky was so full of stars,

saying his name,

hushed and hopeful,

that he could hear them.

Flashback – Here’s To The Kids Who Wear Purple

You taught me to love,

showing me how to put familiar fondness

in the single fondant fancy I would find,

hiding in my lunch box,

alongside salad sandwiches,

that tasted of

“Have a good day.”

“Come home safe.”

“You are the thing I have loved most,

in this wild, wide world.”

I watched you wash my clothes,

turning them from fashion to compassion,

sending me into the world each day,

wrapped in wishes that I would be wise and well,

sending me to sleep,

with stories,

soft pyjamas,

and a small nightlight made of the stars from the sky,

you always taught me was mine to aim for.

So,

why,

when I loved someone,

who loved me too,

the way you taught me,

with kindness,

selflessly,

more than I had ever loved anyone,

in this wild, wide world,

did you suddenly stop?
