I'D Rather Have Love

I am no stranger,
When it comes to love.
No stranger to the feel.
I am no stranger,
When it comes to love.
And I know it when I give it's real.

I am no stranger to giving up my loving.
I am no stranger to giving up love.
I am no stranger to giving up my loving.
I am no stranger to giving up love.
But there are people,
Afraid of the touch.
And there are people,
Afraid of the feel.
And so many people will not admit,
There is someone wanted they wish to kiss.

I am no stranger,
When it comes to love.
No stranger to the feel.
I am no stranger,
When it comes to love.
And I know it when I give it's real.
But there are people,
Afraid of the touch.
And there are people,
Afraid of the feel.
And so many people will not admit,
There is someone wanted they wish to kiss.

I am no stranger,
When it comes to love.
No stranger to the feel.
And I'd rather have that,
Than the getting of pain.
I'd rather have that,
Than the getting of sorrow.
I'd rather have love.
That's a fact.
I'd rather have love.
Give me that.
I'd rather have love.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Idealistically Detached

Holding those accountable,
For public speeches made...
Idealistically detached from that,
Which is actually lived as fact...
By those scratching their heads,
Trying to reveal for themselves a relevance...
Applicable!
Is...

A routine of a message given,
By politicians witnessed...
Hoping,
No one notices a life of reality...
Those who ball their fists and listening,
While gritting their teeth...
Live on a day to day basis.

'I know!
Trust me...
I know,
There may be some amongst you...
Disgruntled and negative.
But I tell you this...
A prosperity for all,
Is as close as my manicured fingertips.
This I am certain of, notice...and can feel.

And just the other day,
While cruising in the Mediterranean...
I was overcomed by feelings of joy and peace.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Idealistically Romantacized

The greatness of those who verbally express...
Whether with pen or deed intended.
Once did capture those moments,
In a time now gone and lived.
Yet endlessly prolonged in depictions never to finish,
For those stuck in memories of outdated prose.
As others make attempts to emulate,
Those treasured moments long gone.
Although...
Some cling onto language butchered,
In the hopes to refine those times overrated.
And glorified to uncover a sense of depth in imitation.
Leaving today's ills to be sweetened tomorrow.
To find they too have become idealistically romantacized.
Deep in the giving of much remembered attention.
And serviced with orchestration,
That invites probable applause.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Ideals Envisioned

You would rather hear philosophies,
Kept to protect ongoing fantasies.
Or specified with ideals envisioned,
You feel represents values cemented.
Values outdated and today making less sense.
And I...?
I would rather re-invent the wheel.
To provide you a less bumpy ride through life.
Although a doing of it you will still criticize,
Just to give you something to do to disapprove...
From a comfort done given to you.
And, at my expense for daring to make attempts,
To initiate with a completing of what I promised.
From start to finish and done within your sight!
Has my doing too much of that caused you to backbite?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
