Before
In a time I can't remember
There was nothing but dark

Then you arrived
A sun to light up my world
Water to keep me alive

You were sweet like honey
With the right amount of sour
To keep things interesting

I made a mistake

I told you who I am

You may be supportive, sure
But you'd never change
For someone, you claimed to love

I was tossed aside
While you ventured out
For you next conquest

How could you
Someone as broken as me
Break me even more?
Don't come out of the closet to everyone :)
I am a woman

I am a woman
who loves women
who loves men

I hate that I get confused
I hate that I act differently
depending on whom I’m with.

My name is Mayara Deo
I have a shaved head
I wear man jeans
I spread when I sit

And I rather prefer to be called masculine
than feminine

Still
I love my female body
I feel **** in bikinis
I feel **** in boxers
But I feel observed
         preyed on
         & harassed in bikinis.

I am a woman
I do have a ******

Still
I hate being told that I am not a man.

I hate that I still confuse
my identity
my sexuality
my being

for the sake of society’s expectations of
of whom I should be.

I crush on guys

I crush on girls

I have loved a man

I have loved a woman

And if one day
I love a person
I hope to marry them.

I hate labels
**** stereotypes

And
I ******* hate that they’re ingrained.

I hate not being considered
stable
sure
a manly-woman

a womanly-man.

My name is Mayara Deo
I am a person

And I want a person
to fall in love with my mind.

I don’t care to bear children
I do want kids
I want to always have a career
I want to care for my home.

I want to be seen as an equal

I want to feel comfortable
wearing a suit on date
with a man.

I want to feel comfortable holding my girlfriend’s hand

For I want to feel valued
as myself.

**** all men

**** all women

who choose to not understand

why I feel so confused:


It’s because of you.

I know who I am
And I'm not sorry for that
What's troubling is where your head is at
Who cares if I'm with a woman or man
Whether or not they have a **** in there pants
What matters is how our souls attract
How we fit like a puzzle with no doubt that we match
Its not like I suddenly changed
Its still me not a creature so strange
I understand its not something you planned
I am who I am
And I can't change on your command
I wrote this the night I came out to my family and was proceeded to be lectured on how I was going to hell. This was what I repeated to myself that night as I fell asleep.

You
Are my moon
As in, if you disappeared my oceans would be pitiful
Tides so very small

Every night I stay awake
Hoping to see you
Or hear from you
Even more so than I did the night before

You are the brightest light
In the darkest times
I used to be afraid of the dark, before you
So I wish you would stay forever and ever, buttercup

You keep me right
Without you, I would not die, just as the Earth without the moon would not die
But I would tilt so far off my axis of stability
Just as the Earth would tilt

When I see you
The sun's serotonin is preserved
You keep the cycle going
And create more just by being there, my angel

Your caress
Your hug
You
Are all I need to face the dark
I'm in a polyamorous relationship, so this is a female version of my Boyfriend poem, inspired by my actual girlfriend. I've only ever called her my moon once
I wrote my life in vain as it has
always been that way
I just was looking for less pain so I did things to go numb
I know I was dumb as I knew what was going to come
I sat on the edge of my bed inhaling to relieve my pain
I really thought this time things were not going to end up the same

there was only ever
one
she was my saving
grace
I drew the word "pride"
But it's the Pan flag.
Underneath it it's the same
But it's a trans flag
I couldn't draw a demiromantic and/or a genderflux flag with chalk.
Now we wait for my parents to see
If they don't see it within two weeks I'll bake a cake that says
"pan, trans, demiromantic and also genderflux"
Maybe I'll need two cakes tbh.

To my sweetest bae,
Our love shines brighter than the sun’s ray,
Never a dull moment when your message comes my way,
Because you’re on my mind every night and day

You’re my sunshine in the rain,
A fit of laughter when I’m in pain,
A shot of oxytocin in my brain,
Something from which I cannot refrain

I see you in my dream,
Where happiness is flowing in a stream,
And luminous light shines through a beam,
You and I,
We make a great team

I love you more than you know,
Like flowers blooming in the snow,
Together we help each other grow,
Without you where do I even go?

My darkest days have turned into sand,
With you holding my hand,
Our journey may twist and bend,
But I promise I’ll be with you till the end
I love you

I am Pansexual
No, that does not mean i am romantically or sexually attracted to kitchenware.
It means, simply, that:
I like boys
I like girls
I like everything other and in between.
I will support you and love you
No matter what you want to express yourself as.
You do you.
You are amazing.
Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
I just wanted to say this <3 Happy Pride Month everybody ♡♡♡

i dont care if you're
purple with scales on your cheeks (all of them)
with green and red eyes
turquoise toes and burgundy feet
i dont care if you're
fingers are nonexistent
and your left hand shakes when you say "grocery store"
i would still love you even if you
had claws for hair and a
twenty-three foot hairy, green
tentacle hanging between your legs.
I think I'm an interesting alien. And these were actual shower thoughts that hit me along with 'are teeth bones, and if they are, they're the only bones you clean' and 'since your voice sounds better to you than it actually does, imagine how *insert human with amazing voice* voice sounds to them'.
I'm genuinely weird.
