ode to oppression

Folder: 
Jonathan

it is restrained

repressed

hidden

it is not shameful

it is dangerous

people

can say they are progressive

and that 

they don't mind

but the looks we get

the looks we get

all the time

every compassionate touch

is a gesture of defiance

every kiss

is a battle-cry


but there is no peace in war

and therein

(my heart is breaking)

therein, dear reader,

forbidden love

surely dies
