If I were a straight guy,
I'd go for the girl no one else seems to see
and everyday I'd tell her how beautiful she is to me with
Her curvy body and mouth that holds
more than a song, but a soul
And her eyes carry such a light they
could never be called coal
I'd want the girl with a tongue so gentle
she chokes on the word hate

If I were a straight guy,
I'd beg the breath you steal from
my lungs is put to good use
Don't waste my oxygen on something like killing
the light of a candle,
Use it to blowing away cobwebs and dust
that have gathered in your mind like
rust on nails

If I were a straight guy,
I'd pray you never let me get that sharp
Rap me on the tongue when I throw words like knives,
cause sometimes I don't realize how phrases impact lives

Truth is, I can only sit back and sigh,
Cause one thing I'll never be is a straight guy
My favorite poem I've ever written :)

Very, very touching and emotional. I feel sorry for the girl that he's talking about.
But I like how you acknowledge the fact that he can't choose to be who he is.
Well done.

It's funny how different people interpret this, thank you for the comment and favorite :)
It's more like I can't choose to be who someone else would want me to be.
