If Someone Loved Leaves They Leave

You have broken my heart.
And again I find myself mending.
To know love is to know,
When the getting over it...
Never ends!

And glad I am to recognize,
Pain is part of realizing...
When to let go.
But the feeling of having known it,
Love...
Is a pursuit that seems to remain forever.

And if someone loved leaves...
They leave.
But love...
Is a pursuit that seems to remain forever.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

If Someone 'stays' Observant

For someone who has bruises on their head.
Two swollen eyes that are blackened.
One sprained wrist...
And a full cast on a broken leg.
You...
Have asked me,
To prove to you there is a relevance connected...
That pays,
Without a doubt...
If someone 'stays' observant.

'Yeah!
That's right.
What do you mean by that? '

I don't think there is anything left,
I could say in words...
That will get you to comprehend,
What I am talking about.

'Oh yeah?
You always 'think' you know EVERYTHING.
But you don't.
You are not immuned from learning lessons,
You know?
You are not 'that' smart.
And I am no dummy.'

Okay.
So what did your lawyer say,
About the police report?

'Like I told him and the police...
That driver should have seen me using my cellphone.'

But you were talking on it,
Standing in the middle of the street.

'BUT...
WHO was driving that car?
Was I driving that car?
Everyone wants to make those who are innocent,
Look as if crimes committed against them...
Is a result of something 'they' have done.
And I am sick and tired of hearing that.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

If Something I Observe Isn'T Seen

Sometimes I don't want to see or hear...
What comes to the surface.
I don't want to pick it up,
For fear of where its been!
I check it out,
Before I open my mouth.
I check it out.
Making sure in my mind,
I am doubtless about it.
Then it becomes free to go...
From my lips or fingertips!

Sometimes I don't believe,
Thoughts that come to me.
I'm the kind that seeks evidence...
To digest,
Before I'm convinced.
And I do not mince words,
If something I observe isn't seen.
I may hear lies...
But my eyes don't do it!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

If Something Is Done With Love

If something is done with love...
Who and how is it determined,
That the source of it...
Does not legitimately please?

And the affect,
To one accepting...
Has not received it completely.
Regardless of who evaluates,
With a detached feeling...
To contemplate with a rating of it.

If something is done with love,
It will stay that way...
Since that is the way,
One who is loving...
Is.

'But...
They believe you are competing.'

With 'who'?
And for what reason,
Would I want to jeopardize...
Those feelings of 'mine' I have inside.
They are mine to devote my time.
Perhaps they believe my loyalty can be undermined?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
