A Genderqueer Love Story

Sam wrote…

This may be a story
Of what they said to show
That I met you,
And you met me,
Was all you need to know.

Because she said to him:
If you will be that girl,
I will be that boy
A little time outside the rules,
Is something we can both enjoy

Read the rest of the poem after the break.

And what are you thinking about gender right now?


A genderqueer lovestory
by Sam

This may be a story,
Of boy meets girl
Or boy meets boy
Or girl meets girl
Let’s not destroy
Our uncertainty

This may be a story
Of what they said to show
That I met you,
And you met me,
Was all you need to know.

Because she said to him:
If you will be that girl,
I will be that boy
A little time outside the rules,
Is something we can both enjoy

A little time outside the rules
A little time off the main track
And if we both enjoy ourselves,
Well, let’s never go back

And she said to him:
If you will be that lady,
I will be that man,
Who is gonna stop us?
There is not a soul that can.

And if you let your hair grow
I will cut of mine
A lifetime outside the rules
And we’ll be feeling fine

The lines may not be straight
And our roles may not be clear
But I love you,
And you love me,
Is all we need to hear.

    Made me cry. That's just the kind of relationship I'm in now.

    This was brilliant. I love that the uncertainty is emphasized (and embraced!).

    'Of what they said so show'…. It's 'Of what they said to show' actually. My typing mistake probably.
    glad people like it. :)
