I Am Not That Giving

If you do not know what respect is.
And you wish for me to point out to you,
Those things you do that are disrespectful?
And your attraction to immaturity too?

You need no longer excuse what you do that has been done,
On pride.
There is something disconnected in your head.
And I am not about to teach another adult,
What is appropriate social etiquette.

That would be likened to teaching a full grown cat,
The aspects of hygiene.
I am not that giving or blessed with those skills.

You want me to do what?
Tell you when you are being disrespectful?
How old are you?
55?
I am not that giving or blessed with those skills.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

I Feel So Stupid

There are those who have chosen,
To go out of their way...
With a doing kept believed,
To pick on someone else they perceive...
They can degrade to decrease,
Insecurities they have to momentarily cease.
Insecurities they keep deep inside felt protected.
To later discover they are the ones to be made fools.
By the ones who have done deeds,
Documented to leave and speak for themselves.
Regardless who flaunts a false sense of self.

'I feel so stupid.
So ignorant I feel to now show this exposed.'

~Okay.
Is there any one particular reason you feel this way?
Or does this feeling re-occur...
With it felt it might stay? ~

'I don't know.
That depends on where I've shown it.
And to who or 'whom' has known it.
Embarrassed I feel and I don't know what to do.'

~Oh.
So you're admitting this feeling isn't 'normal' for you?
I've seen you being stupid,
But I thought you were accustomed to the doing of it.~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  399.     

I Have Friends

What's meant to be kept private.
And left within walls thought protected,
By closed and locked doors...
Seems to often find its way to be whispered,
With unsolicited opinions to give...
Shared between distant lips.

'I wouldn't have believed it.
If I didn't happen to hear it from the horse's mouth.'

~And how is it you know so much,
About what's going on inside their house? ~

'I have friends.'

~With it convinced you are one too.~

'Don't be vicious.
You want to hear this or not? '

~Whatever.~

'Well, stop interrupting me.
And then...after 'that' happened,
I was told the police arrived.'

~Who told you that? ~

'I don't know.
Bernice knows.
She's on the other line.
Give me a moment.
Don't go anywhere.
Bernice?
I'm sorry.
Now...
Who called the police?
And what time did they get there? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  400.     

I Make My Own Decisions

Not to take commitment ceremonies,
Seriously.
Or feel them felt deeply,
In the exchanging of vows...
To profess within listening distance,
How one's independence will be kept.
And accepted not to make any difference,
Will eventually leave that one alone...
To have all the independence they wish,
With it never again needing to be expressed...
By someone who leaves,
Not even a raised eyebrow.

'Where are you going,
With all of your things packed? '

~I too can make decisions.~

'But...
What about 'our' relationship? '

~Which one?
The one we had?
Or the one you haven't divorced from yourself? ~

'I only said,
I make my own decisions.
And being in a relationship,
Shouldn't change that to make a difference.'

~There is a difference.
What I seek is a shared relationship.
And what you need is to feel competitive.~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
