Girls that love girls

Picture gotten from-Pinterest

Everything always falls into place.

The summery yellow colors, lipsticks and dresses.

Our curves, the bulk in our thighs and the contour that lines our gloomy faces

“Let’s talk about boys” we will always say,


Giggling in the darkness that surrounds

the meetings we have lying in our beds.

Let’s annotate their confusions and

hilarious fallacies

Painting their attitudes with our undying laughter full of wants for their open honesty.


I’m enthused.

So often, about pretty souls

that dislike making girls look petty.

Girls that will jump into a puddle of mud with you and still laugh you a river.

I call them women.

Men call them women.


Girls that love girls.

They steal the pride and confidence left of the earth

Even in thoughts, they glow without

being lit, filtering hatred in gatherings meant for knights

Would you have one for a friend or a foe?

Either way, it’s a charm not bestowed out of wedlock!

    My first visit and first read here. This is real poetry. Very (!) nicely done. Had to chuckle at the double-entendre second stanza.
