A Poem (50)

He was not supposed to cry
or that is what they told him.
He was not supposed to show feeling
or that is what they told him.
He was not supposed to love
that other boy.
Growing up
people around him
told him
there is only love
& true love between man and woman.
He listened to those words
until his feelings changed.
His heartbeat fast,
his palms sweaty
and love in his heart.
But it was for a boy.
He denied his feelings,
shoved them down.
Because people
told him,
you are not allowed
to feel a certain way.
He got his first girlfriend,
broke it off soon after,
no feelings involved.
He fell in love
but choose another girl
only temporary.
Not once
did he tell someone
about his feelings.
Our society
makes people believe
that there can’t be love
although love is love.
His life passed
and as he died
taking his feelings to the grave.
