Faggot

FAGGOT

a faggot is a bundle of sticks bound together as fuel.

i am a faggot, and your words are my fuel. 

i ignite on the inside when i hear your murmurs and whispers. 

the voices in my head tell me to burst. 

burst into flames, they say. 

burst into flames, they say. 

burst into flames, they say. 

but i won’t, i won’t burst into flames. 

because my flames are my tears. 

and my tears are my weakness. 

and my weakness is your strength. 

i won’t let you be strong. 

no, not i. 

this faggot won’t allow you to light me up any longer.
