The stars above my bed twinkle softly,
Bathing us in glowing blues, greens and pinks.
Our bodies feel like two figure skaters,
Pushing and pulling.
No part of the body goes untouched.
His hand slithers around my neck and yanks my neck up.
Eyes are the window to the soul,
But I swear his are soulless.
His slimy worm-like tongue wriggles around my ear,
And he softly whispers,
“I love you baby.”
For a second, the car was completely quiet. We were heading back to UMass, swerving on those darkly-lit backroads, when I thought to myself, “wow, this is the first time my dad has ever done anything for me.”
It was a surreal moment that I never thought would happen. But as that realization hit, I found myself shedding a few tears in the front seat, thinking about how my biological father was actually being a dad for once.
Love is when her mood affects your mood, It takes over your body A feeling of no control, though none is wanted Love is the uncontrollable smile that comes across your face when she’s around, It’s so genuine no way can you can have a frown Love is being chest to chest, heart to heart Matching pound by pound Lovely synchronized with each passing moment and when the pounding of each others heart is apart, it stays consistent Love is many wonderful things but one thing it is not is a One-Way street Nor 50/50 more 100% from from both sides So when Love like this comes along in your life don’t take it lightly because Love like that may only come around once in a LifeTime -ST
On Tuesday Mar. 20, the Stonewall Center of the University of Massachusetts Amherst hosted a LGBTQIA+ Art Showcase and Open Mic night. Held in Bartlett Hall, the event was broken up into two parts.
The night started off with snacks and a gallery walk. The gallery featured over 15 artists with art pieces ranging from paintings, embroidery, photography, knitting, and more. People were able to walk through and admire the work that artists created as a rotation of chill music, like Solange’s latest album When I Get Home, played in the background.
