    What have you done to me
    I now feel so weak
    unable to control my actions
    wishing it was a different attraction
    It's hard for me to think
    No longer able to look myself in the eyes
    Because of what I have realized
    I don't want to face this reality
    Although many secretly feel empathy
    Everynight I pray this is all a nightmare
    Because i'm so scared
    I've tried to control myself from kissing you
    but my feelings and desire unfortunatley only grew
    It feels as if there are magnetic strips
    on our hearts
    which is why we can't stand being apart
    We are drawn to one another
    You are my friend, my lover
    But I must admit sometimes i'm ashamed
    and you are the reason to blame
    Youv'e changed me in the most embarassing way
    I don't know how to tell it
    What words should I say
    This is the worst secret I've ever had
    Now saluting the skittles flag
    I feel like it may actually be the
    end of the world
    I'm in love with a **** girl
    Forget about all the other commited sins
    if those weren't getting me to hell,
    this one will definatley get me in
    Once living, now bleeding the story of my life
    You might as well pass me the knife
    I will never have a husband
    I will never be a wife
    I will never naturally bring forth a life
    What will my family, friends and worst of all God say
    When I finally admit "yes I am gay"

    The genuineness of your expression, is quite touching, there is much that occurs in life that is beyond our understanding, yet, it exists. Flow on.

    I love this line:

    It feels as if there are magnetic strips
    on our hearts
    which is why we can't stand being apart


    Girl, you really really touched me with this one - your courage and your honesty. When you step forward and embrace yourself, from that all good things flow.

    Much love to you. :grouphug:
