    I woke up this morning
    With your warm body next to mine
    And I turned on the news only to learn
    That we will never be married
    Or accepted
    Or recognized
    Or respected
    We will continue to share this beautiful manifestation
    Of a soul-deep connection
    Beneath the catacombs and bowels of everyday life
    You will pretend to be the nurturing physically handicapped teacher
    And I will pretend to be the revolutionary English teacher by day
    And hardcore entrepreneur by night
    We will push students to new limits
    Cause them to question
    For the unexamined life is not worth living
    And no one will guess at our alter egos
    And no one will make the connection between our children
    And their two mamies
    And if they do, then maybe we will move someplace
    Where we can homeschool without harrassment
    But the fact of the matter
    Even without all the kinks worked out
    Is that we will never be married
    Or accepted
    Or even respected
    We will always simply be a fearsome fairytale
    And a living example that churches can point their fingers at
    For condemnation

    Wow...this was deeply written. You definitely gave us something to think about, and rethink in some cases. Keep your flow going.

    Thanks!!

    Hey, thanks for all the replies and support!! I appreciate everything, guys. It was just a thought that I had one morning this past week when I woke up next to my girl of six months. Her car had gotten broken into, and she asked to sleep at my place so we could leave straightaway to cancel all of her things the next morning. Well, I was watching her sleep and just thinking man, it really sucks that something so beautiful and so real to me will always be measured on a spectrum of this society's beliefs in regards to sexuality... *sigh*
