Skin Deep

If only it was as simple as opening a gate

And taking you for a walk in my head

If you could see my logic, even just for a second

I think it would change your opinion

And it wouldn’t matter if it didn’t

Because you’d be able to understand 

You could see how looks seldom matter to me

And my first impressions are never long lasting

It doesn’t matter what you are

What matters to me is who you are

You see, a pretty face and a good figure does nothing for a black soul

And so an untraditional face cannot hide a beautiful one

So if you find yourself doubting that you are good enough for me

Don’t go and look in the mirror

Listen to your thoughts and take a walk in your mind

Or just let me decide for myself


I keep a lot of my identity completely secret, and that’s how it’s going to stay, but I’m not at all afraid to fly this flag. I don’t care about labels, and I don’t go up to people and say: “Hi, I’m Bluebell, and I’m pansexual” – because there’s literally no need. If someone asks, I’ll tell them. It doesn’t define me. But it is a big part of me, and seeing as I can safely tell you my sexuality without giving my whole life away, I decided to go ahead and write this post. The poem is not my best, but it gets the point across. And I thought I may as well explain I’m not attracted to pans – oh my god! – sorry, I’m back. I just saw a really sexy-ass frying pan! 😉
