We, Single Gentlemen (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)



We laugh at the needy men who claim to be gentlemen
We roll our eyes at the men who need lovers as property
We are gentlemen who not only have penises, but have brains

We shake our heads at the men who use sex to mark their territory
We know we shouldn’t raise any children we can’t father
We are gentlemen who may are single by choice, no desperation here

We hold the door open, stand up for what’s right, exude confidence
We aren’t afraid of emotion and have no problem with your affection
We are gentlemen who work hard for the future, setting standards

We are self-made and quite charming to be around, just ask
We are men who know ourselves well enough to live our one life
We are gentlemen who will marry when we please, quite comforting

We have the patience to wait for our right handsome king or queen,
We sit on the thrown ready to reign our ambitious kingdom
We are gentlemen who play Chess while others play Checkers

When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
