At Long Last


'It feels so unusual,'

I say,

'I feel so happy

This way,'

And she cares about me;

She cares

Wearing wounds about me,

I blare

She's the truth of beauty


What to do about me?

I'm scared

Oh, it pains my ev'ry centimeter

Not to stand up and exclaim

How, so enchained and right insane,

I just feel right inside my brain

I am unusual and lucky

Oh, I am, so

Give me, give

Give me just enough to

Justify my middle

Eye miraging future's

Past--which was unasked--and

Speaking volumes of my

Problems, adding to my

Bluest blast

'At long last!'

All is shadowed: future, past

All I want is all I have

And all I have is all I've asked


On Loves Of Sorts


Yet again: all alone

And sadness consumes me

Here I am, my beer in hand

To drown away my sorrow

Yet again, my only friend

To take away tomorrow

Three days it was to end the six

And that was all it took

One moment, I was dancing

And, then, did come the hook

In sorrow, yet again

I am

I greet my friend with glee

Dear beer, I'll always love you

And thanks for loving me


Nicki Ephemme


These wings are filled so far to brim

For he has found Nicki Ephemme

He falls again



It stabs as she is not with him

He groans to give his everythin'

To poor, sweet Nicki

Nicki Ephemme

A shovel shades some sorrows, deep,

As scars could save tomorrow's keep

A past of wide and wond'rous weeps

Will heart impede a pleasant peak?

Or could she make this man complete?

These wings are filled so far to brim

For he has found Nicki Ephemme

He kneels and prays



He begs for Nicki

Nicki Ephemme

Unfounded fears must disappear

So he can hold her close to him


A Simple Wish


I wish my fears would fall away

So undecayed, the words I'd say

My pen in sin does wipe away

My pen is sin shows not my shame

In fear, so fraught, as I'm insane

With riches and a coupled pain

Destroyed I am, but I'm okay

My fears will fall away someday

      Nothing to add to the thread as I haven't told most people about me yet, but I actually LOL'd at that 🤣

      Hi JK,  pleased to meet you   I think you'll find you have wandered into the right place, you can interact as much as you like and there are plenty of threads to read or questions to ask! Wish I had something cool I could say I am working on, but really I'm quite sad and there isn't anything  There are plenty of us here who are into different elements of geek culture and from what I've seen quite a few talented artists and poets too. Are you a console or PC player? I play PS4 co-op games mostly so love building in Minecraft, and I love RPG's and read just about anything in the fiction genres when I get the time.
    • ThatDarnDodo
      Welcome, JK. Wow, we have a lot in common. Both masculine afab into games and geeky stuff. Although, I'm into more jpop than kpop and trashy werewolf fiction as opposed to vampires. Although, there was than one story...    Anywho, I have no doubt you'll have a great time here. I'm also pretty new but everyone's been really welcoming so far.

      @MaryMary I think trans people are just magnets for insane psychologists. I briefly saw a woman who admitted to never having seen a trans person in our first session and in the second one told me she'd gone and googled trans folks and had somehow come to the conclusion that most trans people are trans because they were molested as children. I died a little inside that day.    @Jackie C.Oh my word, all of that sounds like a scene from a transgender sitcom.

      Hello everyone! I have been looking for a good community where I could interact in a semi-anon way as I start the (rather terrifying) early steps in questioning my gender identity. I hope to benefit from the vast and varied experiences of other members as I navigate the waters of my own personal journey. A little about me~! I'm a 30+ masculine person who was AFAB. I love video games, kpop, and other fandomy/geek stuff. I build cool things in Minecraft, write trashy vampire fiction, and I love hearing about the creative projects and passions of my friends.  Excited to be here! If you want to be extra welcoming, tell me about something cool you're working on.

      Be patient and give it some time. There will be a day you aren’t reaching for the pronoun yet it will find you. It all seems stars only align once the time is right. ❤️   Just keep doing the work for yourself and that day will come.    Kylie

      Oof, sorry to hear  Hang in there Abi.

      I feel like my skull is locked in a vice and coronavirus hired Hercules to turn the crank. I would not wish this experience on anyone. I hope none of you go through this. I am managing but the sharp random pains are an eye watering event. I can breathe still so at least there is that. Coffee made it worse so I guess water is on for now. Have a cup for me. Stay safe. ~Abi~

      Very nice! I think you’ll enjoy your progress talking to someone who specifically has a ‘gender issues’ expertise. Over the past few years, I’ve learned so much about myself with the help of my therapist who is very good at getting clients to look at things in a different way and help them sometimes discover them on their own. I seem to always leave therapy in a great mood. It makes it so worth my time. Good luck with your new therapist!   Susan R🌷

      Once upon a time, when I was out, but still regulated to the men's room (my state has bathroom laws), I was changing in the locker room before my workout. I was dressing in a gender neutral/feminine manner and wearing a sports bra. Now, I had my gym clothes underneath. I'd shuck my shirt/pants and had my shorts/tank on. The guy changing next to me gave me the once-over and said, "You've got a lot of balls bringing those (my breasts) in here." What do you say to that? I wanted to say, "Well, I'd leave them at home but they cry." What I went with was, "Well, until I get bottom surgery I'm stuck in here with all of you. I apologize if it offends, but I'll be out of here in a minute." Nobody made a fuss afterwards and a couple of months later, my friend who runs the cleaning staff told me, "You know we have a gender-neutral bathroom, right?"   Hugs!

      Hmmm ....    - the doctor who checked my vocal cords said to me that they looked fine and that if I waited a couple of months my voice would change by itself. ( I don't think that's how that work) - My last gender therapist said that although I would not have periods I would have the mood swings that goes with it and she explained in quite a lot of details. ( I don't think that's how that work) - My first therapist who "helped" trans people for 40 years took a good 1 hour to explain how trans people treatment looked like in the past. He said that trans patients were difficult. Then proceeded in describing electroshock treatment he did at the start of his career in far too much details. That was completely surreal. There's not many gender therapists in a smaller city so sometimes you have to go trough that kind of gender therapist to get all the help you can gather. - Both the gender therapist I saw tried to explain WHY I was trans. When a psychologist do that my experience tell me to expect a trainwreck of an explanation. Your father gave you too much pressure to be a boy... but he gave me none like... at all. And then you try to explain that it,s false and the therapist don't listen and the conclusion is there without any possible input. And each psychologist have a totally different explanation, each time that explanation is without appeal. Yet, all of those totally contradict each other... sometimes I think they do that by design and consult each other.... lol - In retrospect and after talking with intersex persons I understand that when I was young all the specialists I saw (including some gynecologists) tried to find if I was intersex !! without telling my parents !!. I get it now that I'm wiser. I went from doctors to doctors each spewing some theory or another on why my voice was not ok and trying to explain what they saw. But, I'm not intersex, 99% sure of that. - My family doctor think I have the keifner syndrome (the thing where you have 3 sexual chromosome)   When I compile all that I did related to being trans trough the years the final portrait in so very strange, so very confusing when you think about it.   The second thing is the relationship part of being trans. I'm not kidding before my coming out people often asked me if I'm gay... other girls were accusing me of being a lady's man (matcho), others where saying I was a totally normal hetero cis male, my parents suspected I was gay, some people accused me of being too brash, others of being too shy and closed off, others said I was too efiminate, others too masculine. Now as a openly trans woman I do too much and put makeup in times when other cis woman wouldn't put it. Some people also tell me I'm too masculine and that I have too many masculine activities. I'm bad for the feminist cause because I think I'm a girl and what I like and do is so stereotypically feminine, I'm a cliché and I'm fake. Yet, other people tell me I'm too masculine and not feminine enough. Sometime I go somewhere with some clothes on and people tell me they would have liked me to wear something more feminine and they wearing the same exact clothes (a t-shirt and pants) people say I should do too much to look like a woman.   All of this is so strange, being trans brings a lot of strange things...

      You could run him through a facetime app and do the gender switch. You should also talk about facial hair. I personally hate it with a fiery passion (I hated it when I could grow it too), BUT a lot of trans-men grow it out a bit to look more masculine.   Hugs!

      Looking good Bri!

      Another great song!!  Yes quite relevant!

      I'm pretty excited about my day. I came out a little further and updated my LinkedIn account with my new name and a pic I took today that I only added a "light makeup" filter to.  I'm really feeling good about how much my weight loss shows in my face and once I learn how to apply makeup like this, and we aren't wearing masks,  I don't think I will be self conscious about "passing".  I also have my first real therapy appointment with a gender psychologist I found outside of my insurance (Kaiser) since the wait time was so long to see that person. I'm going to get at least two appointments with the new one before my first one with Kaiser.  I will use the Kaiser one for my medical transition needs but  I felt I needed one that was more available for my actual emotional/mental health.  I'm not struggling now but the goddess help me if I got into a situation where I needed to see one and had to waits 9-15 weeks.  It's worth the extra $200/month for now to have that security blanket I think.   @KymmieL I'm glad your trip went so well.
