Like Trying to Get Close to a Cactus

I know what it is like
To be attracted to someone
With cold shoulders.

It is like trying to get close to a cactus.
You don't wish to get pricked...
But there is something addicting,
That makes one going back to it!

I know what it's like,
To feel alone...
With someone there,
Laying next to me in bed.

And I don't want to be touched.
Or move too much!

It took me a long time to admit,
I was not involved in a relationship.
Whatever it was,
I grew comfortable with!
Like knowing a pet is around...
If it or you wishes to be found.
A convenience that takes place,
Of a total absence.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Like Us

Why bother to get involved with folks,
Who have zero integrity?

And why do folks become disappointed,
With those who have a history...
Of lieing and cheating.
With a shown irresponsibility.

'Perhaps fools attracted,
Are meant to be together.'

And those observing with their opinions...
Have more time on their hands than they wish!

'You mean like us? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Like Yesterdays Lived

I'm so glad I stopped to learn,
How to feel empathetic with concern.
I'm happy I didn't pass that by...
Like so many
Who are afraid to cry,
Trying to hold their feelings inside.

I'm so glad I stumbled on my path,
And asked for assistance...
When things got that bad.
I allowed my pride to drag me on my ass,
Before I woke up to realize
Things do pass.
Just like yesterdays lived,
But not relived!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Like You And I Were In A Marriage?

You say I have been harsh and critical,
Aloof and seem to be unreasonably embittered.
You also make claims I have been unapproachable,
And that my actions are more like a quitter.

You say,
Whenever you come to visit my home...
I sit with very little to exchange in conversation.
And my hospitality has begun to get 'edgy'...
As if I don't want to communicate in the sharing of,
Those topics you pick.

'I see...
When was the last time you invited me,
To come to your home?
Or invited me out anywhere? '

Well...
I...uh...live in a...uh,
Neighborhood I don't particularly like.
And besides...
I like your music.
The meals you cook are delicious.
And...
Where else can I go,
To use a computer, watch anything I want on TV...
And not be disturbed by noisy neighbors.

'I see.
Like you and I were in a marriage? '

No. No...
Nothing like that.
Just good friends.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
