Your Words Don’t Hurt Us

Queers!
I laugh and pull her close
She leans her head on my shoulder
Your words don’t hurt us
I love her

Freaks!
I chuckle and squeeze her hand
She smiles weakly
Your words don’t hurt us
I love her

Dykes!
I wince and look to her
She drops my hand
Your words don’t hurt us
I love her

Fags!
I turn to her and reach out
She steps away
Your words don’t hurt us
I love her

Faggot!
I pocket my hands and drop my gaze
She is not here
Your words hurt us
I loved her…

I still do
