Deep-seated are the feelings that scratch at the surface of her heart

Churning for a love that has forever been ignored

Shunned by a society of ignorance forewarned

Piercing are the screeches of her sorrow

Empty are the souls of those who shame her

They know not of love

Only sheer complacency

Which in the end will be their undoing

For their hearts will remain cold and empty

As they struggle to find a single companion

There is no longer empathy for their shameful intolerance

They shall be cast aside to the unknown

Only to return when ignorance is no more
