Get Listed ~ November Edition




he said his heart would be outed
his secrets exposed ..
if the world read his poems  

I encouraged him

at night, alone in my room
blinds drawn, no one near ..
I devoured his poetry

wondered how it could be
he exposed, outed
my desires, my secrets ..

lips touched
flesh pressed against flesh ..
my friend and me

the way I knew it would be

  3. Did you feel betrayed? Seems, by the last few lines, that you simply let go.

    Very raw, very familiar.
