He texted he wanted me back.
But not the way we were then.
He wanted me only physically.
Physically, I questioned.
For all I was left,
After I was abandoned,
the shattered me—
My bones, broken into pieces, though they weren't,
My joints, loosening, though they weren't,
My blood, evaporating, though it was not.
But I didn't tremble.
Though my bodily hair felt the goosebumps
Rushing through the blood in my veins;
My fingers were frozen.
But, something in me said:
He had made you realise:
He was more a lesson than blessing.
He texted again.
This time questioning:
Yes or no?
He presumed I would agree,
Agree to what he'd written—
To his conditions.
Are you even a human?
I'd written him back.
Don't use emotion to melt me
For it won't work.
I acted humanely,
He didn't understand.
I couldn't help,
And, didn't write back.
I just wanna fuck you,
Want to suck your big phallus,
Want it to penetrate me,
Want to wet you.
In short, he wanted to fuck me!
Taken aback I was.
I was happy he texted me
Nevertheless, unhappy at the same time
For I never wished his come-back this way.
Would I've complied,
Had not my self-respect reminded me.
For the last time I wrote him:
I truly have love you,
Still love you.
But now, I don't,
If you truly hate me! #poem#writeup#randomthoughts#randomwritings#gaywriteups#gayliterature#scribbledstories

Valentines Day? Maybe you’re not in the mood. Maybe you’re dreaming at work. Here’s some Frank O’Hara from Lunch Poems. He was a star, no? If only he was still around to irreverently comment on today and its quirks.
Okay... I know we recently posted about how good Zami by Audre Lorde was. And guess what? It’s so good that we’re posting about it AGAIN. You simply have to read this memoir by the legendary black lesbian writer. She is so witty and warm, so capable of weaving universal truths into the story of her youth. We follow her bouncing between New York and Mexico, from lover to lover, around job and school... and with each leap, you see the world from an increasingly enlightened perspective: we learn about the world alongside her younger self... though Lorde was definitely wiser than we’ve ever been. It’s the kind of book you just feel grateful that someone wrote. Get yourself a copy.
Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan has been a smart choice for my second book of the year. Done with it already and still amazed by the radical message the story conveys. The title sums it all up: there’s absolutely nothing wrong with two boys kissing. This is not an ordinary gay story though. Throughout the pages, we discover the complex inner world of the main characters, why they do what they do and the aim of their existence, which brings the reader to a state of sympathy and concern about the fucked up real situation many guys and girls go through. We are true witnesses of teens committing suicide, young guys being bullied and abused, sometimes even raped and killed. This book, this story, this author... Gosh, i wish there would be more recognized works like this one.

Hanya Yanagihara’s novel, A Little Life, is a modern queer epic. It is sad and beautiful and brilliant, the kind of book you devour ravenously, hungry to find out what happens to the characters you’re forced so viciously to love. It is the story of four friends, each somewhere on the queer spectrum, and their intersecting lives from graduating university into middle age, focused around one of them in particular - Jude, a talented lawyer who is haunted by his brutal, horrific past. A Little Life is at times sensationally difficult to read, as Yanagihara paints Jude’s history with uncompromising horror, dropping the reader into memories of child abuse and other evils. The trick of the novel, though, is to make you beg for hope, to force you to turn each page praying that things will improve, that Jude’s little life might finally be given respite, air, love. A Little Life invests so much joy in the possibility of queer affection as a redemptive influence that in the rare happy sections of the novel, you drown in halcyon ecstasy, and wish, like Jude, that it could last forever. What a novel! We highly recommend it. Thank you, @hanyayanagihara 🌟
“The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.” - Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray. You can’t read that quote and not think of what happened after this book was published. 😭
I took a deep breath. "Try it again," i said. "Kiss me."
"No," he said. "Kiss me."
"No." And then he smiled. "You kiss me."
I placed my hand on the back of his neck. I pulled him toward me. And kissed him. I kissed him. And i kissed him. And i kissed him. And i kissed him. And he kept kissing me back.
Guten Morgen ihr Lieben 😙
Heute gibts eine Extraportion Liebe für euch mit einem Buch, dass meiner Meinung nach, viel zu wenig Aufmerksamkeit bekommt.
In 'Aristoteles und Dante entdecken die Geheimnisse des Universums' geht es um Familie, um Zusammenhalt, Freundschaft, Liebe, sich selbst finden, erwachsen werden und und und. Die ganze Story wird unterstützt durch Benjamin Alire Saenz' leise, poetische und berührende aber mächtige Art Worte zu gebrauchen, die einem tief berühren und zum nachdenken verleiten. Worte die sich ganz tief in ein Herz graben und dort nie mehr weggehen. Worte die einem verändern, wenn man es zulässt. Worte die sich die ganze Menschheit zu Herzen nehmen sollte, denn die Menschheit könnte von Ari und Dante noch eine Menge lernen.
Good morning dear ones 😙
Today you'll get a huge amount of love - I'd like to present you a book which, in my opinion, receives too little attention. 'Aristotle and Dante discover the secrets of the universe' is about family, about cohesion, friendship, love, about finding yourself, growing up and much much more. The whole story is carried by Benjamin Alire Saenz's quiet, poetic, touching and powerful way to use words that deeply touch you and thus provoke thoughts. Words which dig deep into a heart and maybe never leave. Words which might change you if you allow them to. Words which all humans should take to heart, because mankind could learn a lot from Ari and Dante.

‘Echo’ by Carol Ann Duffy — the first woman, Scot, and openly gay writer to be Britain’s Poet Laureate. This poem echoes the myth of, well, Echo, the Oread of Greek legend who was doomed to repeat the words of others rather than speak her own, and so was never able to confess her love to Narcissus, who then fell for his own reflection instead...
