You could have a big dipper   

Faggot by Ashish Kumar Singh



The question I want to ask

is why the nature of love so hurtful?

Like too much candy in one’s stomach.

Like showing kindness to the boy

who once called you a name

you didn’t know the meaning of.

Like telling someone you like them

so much that it starts to hurt.

A burn right in the chest.

Like praying day and night


for a change but still

have to wake up with an e

pointing towards the dream of the boy

who knows too much words you don’t.

Like trying and trying and still

be that person everyone calls you to be.
