It was dark last night
When we were on the phone
Talking about the recent law reform

You complained about how it was disgracefully declined
by those people who have always despised us
I said that I wanted you to know
that you have me full-heartedly inclined
to you. Although we don't see each other often, that's fine.
We'll stay strong together, because
we have each other in mind.

Then I heard you smile.

And it starts to dawn.
I wrote this last year when our lawmakers were about to deliberate the laws involved same-*** marriage but was postponed because there were lots of people protested against it. That upset me a lot, but I thought we must keep pushing or we're gonna lose it.

I didn't personly experience what I wrote, but this conversation must happen a lot between real-life same-*** couples. And I think it's beautiful.
