Homosexual Zombie Relationship Trouble









-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A conversation I had with Cyber over Skype described things quite well. 



[6:54:04 PM] Mr. Joshua: It is a poem about zombies.
[6:54:08 PM] Mr. Joshua: but at the same time,
[6:54:17 PM] Mr. Joshua: about a troubled relationship.
[6:54:21 PM] Mr. Joshua: But at the same time,
[6:54:40 PM] Mr. Joshua: about fighting for your own sexuality.
[6:54:43 PM] Mr. Joshua: But at the same time,
[6:54:46 PM] Mr. Joshua: it is about zombies again.
[6:55:15 PM] Cyber: Ah.
[6:55:18 PM] Cyber: Sounds deep.
[6:55:25 PM] Mr. Joshua: but at the same time,
[6:55:25 PM] Mr. Joshua: not at all.


I first wrote this poem to be a sad poem inspired by a conversation I had with a girl I've romantic interests in. Which should make sense after last weeks post. 
But when I began to draw it all the pictures were boring.
So I looked at the poem again,
that time I saw a man, or woman, trying to stand and pronounce there homosexuality despite what society often demands. 
Drawing again I was still getting rather dull pictures.
So I looked a third time at the poem,
that time I saw zombies. 
So in the end I find myself with a poem that is a metaphor for many different things.


I wonder what you see in it?
