Lesbian School Poetry

Your morning is so bright
that my heart wants to speak out.

Your morning is so bright
that my heart wants to speak out.

This loneliness is so
I cannot write
for the loneliness is killing me.
Kiss my breasts with yours
so I can breathe.

Where is the life
that I am looking for?
When I think, Why is it that
my thoughts are between your legs?
… your lips taste so salty.

Let us bleed into each other,
so we can stop feeling the absence
of our togetherness –
– deep inside our bones.
So we do not have
a morning that is not shared.
