The Real Me

Posted in: NZ Writing
By Gordon Miller - 30th July 2006

The shadow following me
Through boy to man
Questions my life
First at a distance but ever closer

Now right in front of me, it
Pierces my flesh
Grabs my heart
Attacks my mind

Wrestling my resistance
Its slow asphyxiating power
Forces submission
Then acceptance

It breathes new life into me
And becomes my friend. welcomes short-format writing based on the joy of being gay or lesbian, whether it be verse, essays, anecdotes or personal insights.
The format is not important, the joy is.
