JOHN

By Travis Gillis

 

 

 

Thought up this one while I was at work. I know it's not a story, but I had to write up something to chase the B5 rerun blues away. If you have any comments, please send them to: voyager1@ktsnet.com

 

 

 

 

I hear what they say, John
About me. Freak. Disgrace. Outcast.
From both of our kind.
Ridiculing what was ordained
By prophecy
By the universe
No matter what I do.

I choke back the tears
And go on
Wearing my face
Wishing that you were
There
So I could let them flow
with myself into you.

You've given me so much
And you have never known it.
When I look in your eyes
I don't see the often:
Hate. Loathing. Distrust.
Only your love
And the smile that warms my heart.

I don't care what they say
I really do not.
As long as I have you near
You are my strength
You are my courage
And the other half of my soul.
I love you.
