Lyrics - In the Eyes

I've had the honor of knowing people on the fringes of “normal” society. I am comfortable with them because I know I could have been them, willingly, if my cards had been dealt differently. Normal is as normal does.


In the Eyes
Poem for Day 249 – 20150907

Look me in the eyes,
straight into my life.
Put aside judgment
as you see within.
My eyes do betray
my humanity.

The outward portrays
and distracts as well.
The tattoos are mine,
the piercings also.
Look above the rest,
I'm more than my chest.

In my eyes you'll see
another looking
back into your soul.

Gender expression,
who I choose to be,
is my both my choice
and biology
combined into
who I seem to be.

I may pay the bills
in ways you dislike.
I may bump and grind,
using my assets,
just as you use yours
in ways best for each.

In my eyes you'll see
the reflection of
tinge of jealousy.

My predilections,
the sexual kinds,
arousal wired,
you may disagree,
perhaps even shocked,
that is how I freak.

Look me in the eyes,
they look back at you.
Spare me the judgment,
who you think I am.
I can see the world
my place next to you.

In my eyes you'll see
reflection of
one you could have been.
One you want to be,
seeing the hidden
one mirrored in me.
