And then I speak up and clarify "Well, actually I'm bi"
I hope my shame is as discreet I hope one day I can say it clear "I'm bisexual, isn't that neat?" And I hope it is so this year

When ink turns into fog And you are on shaky ground Impaired visibility And clouded thoughts Slowly engulfs your mind You try to find your way Through the unknown No way to know Whether you reached the precipice Where your thoughts Shall be history forever Deep abyss waiting For you to surrender The pen you held till now Scatter away the pages They hold no meaning Or, wait for the fog to clear And walk towards the clear stream Take a dip to rejuvenate The soul and mind
The darkness absorbs light and the day becomes wary of the blinding glare If you can find your way through the darkness you will have been a traveler who walked neath the stars reflecting more light than the day can hold letting you see clearly the path ahead
