I Wish I Knew That

You didn't want to hurt my feelings,
By being specific and direct?
Well,
Let me say 'this' about 'that'.
With my own assessment,
You may or may not have been able to detect.

My feelings have been already crushed,
By your deceptions.
And whether accepted or not,
Those are the facts.
With no exceptions.

'I wish I knew.
I wish I knew that.'

I'm glad you didn't!

'Why?
Why not? '

If you had been honest with yourself,
I would have known and met someone else.
And from my perspective...
At least I know now,
Whoever you are or could to me have been...
Would not have earned my trust.
Since...
Someone who lies never knows when to end them.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

I Wish My Heart To You Was Known

I wish my heart to you was known.
With emotions deep.
I do keep within reach.

I can be distant at times.
But my mind is aware.
Who approaches with sincerity.
And a return of it,
I can and will share.

Without defense or fences seen.
To pop up suddenly...
From nowhere.
To be rude, indignant or mean.

I'm here to care.
But not just for anyone.
Nor do I seek perfection.
Not with the flaws,
I've yet to overcome.

It is not often that I meet someone...
Who can accept with forgiveness,
The unconsciousness of others.
And allow them time...
To correct what they have done.

I try not to sit with bitterness inside.
Knowing my pride could be hard to handle.
Since I overly protect a sensitive side.

A peace of mind I have.
And it was not easily obtained.
It took years in development.
To keep as is.
Proudly maintained.

Many times I have sat alone.
Amazed in the ways that I have grown.
And wishing someone knew,
My life the way I do!

Perhaps that's why I wish...
My heart to you was known.
I recognize your thoughtfulness!
And that...
Not too many can express.
In the way to me you have shown!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

I Wish To Experience The Honesty Of Romance

There is no interest here for your magic.
Nor are there embers here to rekindle,
That would ignite a slow dying flame!
I'm jaded.

Games played like that have faded.
I am not against recognitions of love.
I wish to experience the honesty of romance.
A natural ocurrence that stirs within the heart.

Something that happens while strolling in the park.
Something in the eyes and not so much from the lips.
Something that stays in the mind...
After separating ourselves from the hips.

For me that's all the magic I need.
That's all I wish to get!
A sideshow I can leave behind.
And that has been done once.
One too many times!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

I Wish To Get Paid For The Publicity

I have been mentally harrassed.
And my mind has been taken,
To inapproriate places.
Leaving my imagination...
To become,
Touched with such a disturbing hold...
I can not sleep peacefully at night,
With unsolicited thoughts...
I have never had before.

'And...
When exactly did this happen,
To merit your charges against...
The defendant? '

It doesn't matter.
It happened.
And besides a wealth of media coverage,
I desire my accusations to pay for a life of leisure...
I am due,
Just for having the audacity to make such ridiculous claims.
Enough.
Let's get down to business.

'And you expect us to find fault with the defendant,
Based upon your foolishness?
You are relying on the public,
To be the judge and jury? '

I expect my 'foolishness',
As you put it...
To be as legitimate as the rest of the 'foolishness',
That has today become prioritized.
AND...
Judge and jury courting whatever the laws may be,
I wish to get paid for the publicity coming to you FREE...
Since I alone created to generate overwhelming TV ratings.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
