Poem: Pink, Yellow & Blue

(LGBT History Month has just started and this is my poem for the month.)

 

Pink, Yellow & Blue

 

At some stage or other,

I chose not to hide,

still filled with fear

of the outcome,

could I handle the prejudice?

All that superior complex stuff

that would come my way?

Then my sister reminded me

that I had faced worse

and had survived.

 

All the pink, yellow and blue

I send out into the world

and say join me

whoever you are,

I ain’t scary

and you don’t need to be either.

 

I just felt like I felt,

found a word to explain it,

you know like you

felt what you felt

and found a word to explain it.

So why do you think I’m alien?

If so, you are as much an alien as me,

just being real about it all mate.

 

All the pink, yellow and blue

I send out into the world

and say join me

whoever you are,

I ain’t scary

and you don’t need to be either.

 

I ain’t hard to understand,

a quick Google search is all

that’s required if you care

about people,

would you like people to make you out to be

so complex, so weird, so strange?

Let’s have respect for each other

then let’s be friends,

that sounds nice,

doesn’t it?

Because I don’t want to fight you,

I don’t even want to debate with you

but come at me

and I’ll come at you,

be nice to me

and I’ll be nice to you,

treat me like a human being

and I’ll treat you the same.

 

All the pink, yellow and blue

I send out into the world

and say join me

whoever you are,

I ain’t scary

and you don’t need to be either.

Poem: Identify?

 

Are you straight?

Or do you identify as straight?

Are you gay?

Or do you identify as gay?

If the former in each case

then please stop saying that I

identify as pansexual.

No.

It’s pretty simple.

You are straight.

You are gay.

I am pansexual.

Poem: Frying Pan

Oh my god,
The misconceptions abound!
It isn’t rocket science
So it isn’t a great sign.
Pansexuality:
Attracted to:
Men, women and non-binary people.
So if I’m pansexual,
1 2 3 …
Who am I attracted to?
“Frying pans?”, I hear one say.
Now I’m seriously losing the will to live.
“Could you be faithful to me?”, one asks.
Jumping ahead, ain’t you?
Never said I wanted to be with you,
Let alone be faithful to you.
But to someone else I will be.
And when I say that,
Just to be clear,
The someone else is not my frying pan.

My Book Hearts: Pansexual Poetry Is Now Available On Amazon!

In October of last year I realised I was pansexual. I’ve been meaning to do a blog post on my experiences of finding out who I was and what the first few months have been like since discovering that section of who I am but as of yet I haven’t got around it with college assignments and tests and that. But I have been writing some short poems about my feelings as a pansexual woman and this book is 15 poems about my feelings.

To purchase the book, go to:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hearts-Pansexual-Collection-Lisa-Reynolds-ebook/dp/B01F88D5OG/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1462554185&sr=1-1

At the moment and for a while I have been writing the fourth book, a fictional romantic novel, but it is going to be my longest book as of yet so it’s taking a bit of time. Will let you all know when that’s up. 🙂

 

Thank you! 🙂
