Frank Ocean writes poems about same-sex relationships


Alongside his long-awaited second album titled ‘Blond’, the bisexual celebrity decided to surprise his fans with one more talent he has. Ocean released a set of poems, in part about the forbidden love. Along with the 17 track album released on Saturday after months of speculations. came a 140 minute visual album – titled Endless – and a 360-page glossy magazine called Boys Don’t Cry (it supposed to be a title for the album, but Ocean decided to rename it).

The magazine includes a series of photographs taken by Ocean, an interview with his mother, horoscopes and a selection of poems – including one titled ‘Boyfriend’. In the poem, Ocean takes the reader back to the monumental Supreme Court marriage equality decision in June 2015:
my boyfriend drives a lil bucket
when it rain it fills up with rain
my boyfriend he gon pick me up
don’t distract him at the wheel
in his lane
he’s the only one
my boyfriend he misses me when i’m gone
so he don’t forget me
there’s a song he sings
calms his nerve, endings
my boyfriend is friendly
and we don’t want no problems
i could say that i’m happy
they let me and my boyfriend become married
i could say that i’m happy
but cross my heart i didn’t notice
hope to die no never, we voted
me and my boyfriend cast our ballot
every kiss reads like a poem
making wrongs right like a poem
i couldn’t say i dream of you
because my dreams are filled with no one
and all is lost
me and my boyfriend we found
we don’t hope for beyonds at all
me and my boyfriend spend time
and that’s all i’m holding on
this time
we got permission
nothing’s above condition
but this ain’t a thang
it’s a mission
can’t join the band so sing along
me and my boyfriend got it going on
sleep with fans and t shirts on
asleep in vans your legs all strewn
across my lap
tan lines where your watch was strapped
you took off to make time
cut your hair
you left it long
i love to stare
there’s nothing wrong
and if i die while i’m asleep
i pray to God my boyfriend
keeps my secret
