Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than hands?

-Ernest Gaines.

I don’t want to feel these bruises and cuts,
That you’ve caused me by leaving,
Get up, get out, get away from these fears,
Will you sing us a song,
And I’ll sing it back to you,
What would my life be like,
Without a glance of the truth,
I’ll hear the notes so clear,
Since I’ve heard a sound,
The sound of my only hope…
I promise I will listen to your fears,
And hold you close and warm,
Caress you in these strong arms and never let you go…
Will you promise to never run away,
And leave me here to die,
To disappear in the night,
With me lying here under the sky,

I’m tryin’ hard to show you,
These feeling that I hide,
Tears, love, and even hatred,
Till now, locked away inside,

Will you accept me now,
That I’ve shown you my true form,
Or will you hate and call me vile,
A creature fit for scorn,

Questions asked yet never answered,
Drift across my mind,
Why did you have to come,
And treat like your kind,

You could’ve left me here,
Like the others, ran away,
Instead you decided to sit down,
You alone, decided to stay,

Here in this world of my own,
My personal silence reigns,
Will you come and help,
To clear away the stains,

I am infected,
I alone feel the disdain,
I don’t want you to be here,
When I scream out in pain…

Will you just take my heart and go……
