Streetlight Romance

A Poem by Alisa_the_fluff_ball

This poem is about the struggle that LGBT couples go through everyday to be together. This is something I feel very strongly about, so I decided to write about it.


There was a girl,


Out of control

Black eyeliner

Pierced tongue

Always alone


Who loved a girl.


Straight laced

Long hair

Cross necklace

Perfect boyfriend


They were never supposed to be.


He left

She cried

Fell into

Her arms


But they were.







Everyone looked upon them with disdain.


Thrown out

On the street


On their own


They never knew love could be so hard.







Leaving each other was no option.


Making love

Moonlight in her hair

Kissing the sorrow

Need her to stay


This streetlight romance continues today.


Who will break the silence?

Very strong and emotional poem, and a good one at that. I felt that the way you played with the words, the way you carried the poem out [the format] added emphasis to the overall poem and kept the reader actually reading. The whole story line was good and meaningful too. I loved this poem alot. Keep it up! :)

You can feel the strong emotion you put in this poem. It is crap what you same sex couples have to go through. Love should be something that is free and beautiful. I am glad that you wrote this and shared it. :)
