I swear we're now friends

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2019

I swear we're now friends,
Our laughter is the song we sing in time, 
As your smile grows, crescent moons take the shape of your earth eyes.
Our friends find us a spectacle.

Yet, explaining us is like drawing up a map of the universe,
and you call me the sun-
your sun.

I swear we're now friends
Since our first date, 
was in a sleepy orange sunset,
aligning this designation from fate,
avoiding where we'll end-
Well...
I avoided it.
You returned Cupid's...

Our room

FREE WRITING

I bottled my emotions because they wrung you out,
left to dry.
called me the sun only to get burnt.

So you hid indoors and closed the blinds,
told me you love me
behind locked doors,
in cloudy rooms.

I could only shine through the slits of curtains,
so you wished for hurricanes
like the ocean, I drowned in you.

I rose from the east of the hills,
where forests that don't know your name run through,
The higher I got the...

To my past conservative Christian curriculum.
Your classrooms were filled with pointlessly popular bubble-gum-brained boys,
bellowing "fag" or "dyke" as the punch line.
girls leaning into each other lurching lesbian like an unlearnt word
As teachers were quietest, 
letting slit slurs slide to the other side of a conversation,
keeping our closets closed,
as you play polite politics.

But at least you taught me to spell words how they sound!

So I know how hate sounds like silence,
