This is how gay couples and interracial couples must feel........

A Letter to My Beloved.....I Love You.


As summer came to a close, my thoughts kept going back to our times together. That glimmer in your eyes, your smile, your continual care and sincerity that you give me- all of the things I miss from day to day without you. This late summer night is beginning to produce a thunderstorm, and light rain is beginning to fall on the porch. I can almost hear your voice in every drop of rain that falls. I vision you with me, sharing our time together on the swing outside- nothing sexual, just being able to share those moments with you. I can only pray that you are feeling the same for me right now. I know you love me. I have been wanting to tell so, so many people about how much I love you, and tell them about us, but I am scared- scared of what they will think, scared for our safety in public if we show any expression of our love, scared for our future, even scared for my job. I'm also scared even to tell my family about our relationship- they don't know about us and I'm not sure what their reaction will be. You being what you are, and me being what I am, we are different than what our families expect.

Still, I love you. I love you with all of my being. If I could never kiss you again I would be devastated, but as long as I could hold you and hug you it would be enough for me, because I truly, truly love you. This is real love, as real as love could be- as deep and emotional as love could be. Life tomorrow would seem absent of light and absent of life without you. You do make me feel completed. I feel like half of a human being without you. I know that some see me as half human or sub-human already because of my past and because of who I am, but with you, none of that really matters to me. With you here, I feel like we can face the troubles with added confidence, but I am still scared sometimes. I am scared because they look at me differently. They put their nose up at me and snicker when I walk away. They make jokes as if I don't exist- as if I am invisible and not standing right in front of them. They even make laws against our relationship rights in some places. Sometimes I can't take it. I get so depressed. I can't take too much more of this. All I want is to be accepted and recognized and respected as a human being with feelings. Wanting to be loved is not wrong. It's not wrong.

Everyone has struggles in life, but mine is not a struggle, it's in my nature. I've always been this way, and you have been too. Our experiences are so similar, and I can't wait until the day comes when we can share who we are without fear of rejection by society, our own families, and the church that I hold dear to my heart. I know that the real Jesus loves me and loves us, regardless of what many people in our church say. A loving God in Heaven will shine down on us, I know so. I cry and pray for that every night. But, I know that our love for each other can't be wrong.

I'm rambling again, but I'll write you again soon. Maybe by then, we can let them know about our relationship and love for each other.

I love you so much.

(This is how millions of gay couples and interracial couples feel everyday. People, stop and think about how life would feel without the one you love, and without the freedom to show affection for the one you love.)


With love,
Jason

Beautiful.
You are not my "friend" because you threaten my security.

Thanks. I hope that society will start having emotion for other people and stop being so selfish.

We should all strive for, not what is "good," but what is beautiful... That's what a friend told me not long ago. Maybe this should be a topic in itself?

touched That was lovely.

If only those opposed to such relationships could see the humanity behind the "perversion".
