Leave Me With 'Something' To Imagine

You could either have my name engraved,
In marble.
And placed on your mantle.
Or have my portrait hung above it.
But know this...
You have elevated me to that position.
With 'your' expectations,
I have no desire to meet to compete.

I will,
However...
Live my life as basically as possible.
Just as I have done,
Prior to any decisions you have made...
To believe my ego has a desire to become inflated.

And...
If I should ever perceive myself that way?
Ever?
You will need a slab of marble.
And a wall much bigger to hang my mural.
With a ceiling so high,
The use of binoculars would not give it justice.

How many times have I told you,
Flattery is cool and I like it.
But I just want to be 'me' with you.
Now...
Get dressed.
I've already told you,
You are beautiful enough...
Without you always greeting me at the door,
With wine, cheese and your nakedness.
Leave me with 'something' to imagine.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Leave Me with Your Pain

Sure.
Go ahead,
And leave me with your pain.
Sure.
Why not?
I have nothing else to do,
But continue to weep your sorrows.

I was told one day I would awaken,
Sick of your afflictions.
And everyday I waited,
With more of them you would introduce.
And it's not only you who does the abusing.
I allow it to happen too.

Sure.
Go ahead,
And leave me with your pain.
Sure.
Why not?
I have nothing else to do,
But continue to weep your sorrows.

I was told one day I would awaken,
Sick of your afflictions.
And everyday I waited,
With more of them you would introduce.
And it's not only you who does the abusing.
I allow it to happen too.

And you say it is me you love?
And I admit I crave to hear it.
And never sick of it I get,
As it heats to sizzle my passion.
And only with you I endear it.
Since,
I love your sighs and the calling of your moans.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Leave of Absence

Whatever mind you say,
You are comfortably in...
I recommend you apply,
For a formal leave of absence.

There is something outside,
That which you have grown attached...
Doesn't quite match,
A security you should have with it.

A pool player knows the object of the game,
Is to pocket all balls before the eighth one drops.
Not to dropp the eight ball or scratch.
Meaning...
If you say you play,
But not suitable to address it as your best effort...
Why show up at all just to bluff?

The players on the field these days,
Do not show up to mentor!

Whatever mind you say,
You are comfortably in...
And allows you to contribute,
To the attributes of others...
I recommend you apply,
For a formal leave of absence.
Eventually,
You will perceive and realize the benefit of this.

Take the suggestion and run with it!
And sit and ponder this without argument.
The players on the field these days,
Do not show up to mentor!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Leave People Who Live Life Alone

Some may say I don't 'NEED'
But that I 'WANT'!
But I know what I need...
And it's you that I want.
If I say it's you that is on my mind?
I know what I'm wanting and needing,
From time to time!

Folks don't have enough to do on their own.
Why can't they leave people who live life alone?
Maybe they are the ones many try to avoid?
But that isn't complete because they are everywhere,
To annoy!
And opinions? Do they have them! Some by the case!
Sometimes whispering...
Sometimes loudly,
But it is done right in your face!
That's the disgrace...
When this is done in a public place!

Some may say I don't 'NEED'
But that I 'WANT'!
But I know what I need...
And it is you that I want!
And I'm not wanting or needing,
Us right now...
To be around them! !
Let's go!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
