When You’re Gay

When you’re gay
dating is just the same
as if you were straight.

Except,
instead of holding hands,
you walk behind him
to avoid being harassed.

Except,
instead of gazing deeply into his eyes,
you make sure no stranger is staring
before you go in for a kiss.

Except,
instead of enjoying the bliss
in a loving embrace,
you protect yourselves
from the man with bulging eyes
who repeatedly shouts
at the top of his lungs:
“The bible clearly states,
one MAN and one WOMAN!

Then, you spend the rest
of your evening
calming down your date
who no longer feels safe
being held in your arms.
