I LOVE CATCHING PEOPLE SMILING AT THEIR PHONES BECAUSE IS IT A CUTE TEXT?? IS IT PORN???? WHO KNOWS BUT I’M GLAD YOU’RE HAPPY FRIEND
They say the best things in life come free to us
For some of us that’s invalid
For me it’s invalid
For her it’s invalid.
For us it’s invalid.
You see our love,
Our love comes at a very expensive price.
The cost of our fingers interlocked in a seemingly small,
-Yet apparently large- public display of affection
(For two girls that is)
Is harsh words and even harsher looks
Or no looks at all
and those are often the worst;
Because it is the refusal to even acknowledge
That we are people.
This, well, this
It’s such an expensive price that
I often can’t afford it.
Like when I have to ask my parents
For money to go to the movies
(Because I have no credibility in life yet
I’m just a teenager who possibly
Can’t know what I want in life or who I am
I don’t have a job to support myself
But that’s what my parents are there for)
and when I ask for that support
they give it to me.
Except when I ask them
to help me afford the expensive price
I have to pay for love
I’m expected to support myself.
