Mistaken Identity

msquared's picture

I can feel their disapproving eyes
Ripping through my flesh
No longer protected by former disguise
Removal wounds still fresh

The snickering boys across the room
Clad in bright, gaudy, apparel
Laugh at me for I have no costume
Truth gives way to peril

Lakes of sweat cover
The Earth that is my body
I wish I could discover
How truth makes one so shoddy

Derisive laughter I hear
Flying a fool’s path
Repeating the word “queer

WOW.

That's al I can say. In my opinion, this is one of the best poems I've seen on oasis. It is so deep and it flows and it is just a really great poem. Good Job.
