Loyalty Should Be The First Thing Discussed

Pent up desires
Do not fizzle with age!
That's what I thought...
Before,
When exploring my sexuality
Was then a crazed rage!
I took my heat for granted.
Wanting to plant my 'meat'...
Just for sensation!
And married what I believed was good.
Not even thinking...
Whether or not I should.
I was young.
And full of...
Come 'hither'-ness!
I thought that was bliss.
Until I got sick of it!
You know...
Like the 'first' high,
Is the only 'high' to have!
After that...
It becomes charity work.
Or some communal obligation!

I'm over that stage in my life.
And today I'm not seeking neither a husband or a wife.
Everything goes today.
But roleplay for me is so passé.
A boring nothingness displayed by so many!
I want to be touch exclusively.
I want that chemistry to ring my bells!
I want my heart to flutter with passion.
I want...
Someone with life to love me.
And I want what we have to sizzle.
The only problem is...
Too many are seeking the same thing!
And I certainly do not want,
Someone else's fire...
To jump into my furnace.
To burn with ecstasy...
To hear a knock on the door,
By someone shouting...
'I know you're in there giving up butt,
To my lover! '

Loyalty should be the first thing discussed!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Loyalty vs Separation

Only those who have given,
Time devoted to the ones loved...
Know with a feeling what this does.
And the meaning of sacrifice,
When someone else's life...
Is a decision made one prioritizes.

And then that regrettable day comes.
When a loyalty versus separation is done.
With a routine fixed and committed for years...
Ends as it began,
To break a heart and bring tears.
As a life witnessed passes on.

Only those who have given,
Time devoted to the ones loved and gone...
Know with a feeling what this does.
And the meaning of sacrifice,
When someone else's life...
Is a decision made one prioritizes.

And then that regrettable day comes.
When the one cherished and loved passes away.
With a doing done and nothing left to say.
Although a loyalty versus separation,
Seems to keep a loyalty that stays.
Regardless of the separation.
Thought of as quick and no longer delayed.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Luck Has Nothing To Do With What Has Been Achieved

Sacrifice, initiative, motivation, discipline...
Self esteem, belief, faith and consistency,
With a persistence to get done and do!
Are you listening to me?

Success has more than one avenue,
One can take to reach it.
But if commitment isn't attached,
With a plan to match...
Some folks will never know,
How it feels...
To touch a dream that comes to life.

And when one has spent many sleepless nights,
In pain and 'still' applies emotions felt to accomplish...
With a focused devotion no one witnesses to see to believe,
Luck has nothing to do with what has been achieved!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Ludicrous Tricks!

What democracy would breed
Devastation upon its own people?
And to segregate its citizens,
To have some perceive...
They should have better lives,
Because this is what
They have been led to believe.

And to isolate in divisions,
To spread hunger and helplessness.
In a self righteousness...
That digresses all the people,
To endure conflicts
Promoting fear and unrest!

Whose freedom is protected,
When a few selected benefit.
As a quality of life...
Diminishes with this sickness.

And what respect for leadership,
Can be expected from the youth observiing this?
Especially when they mature to know...
What they've been told,
Has been based on lies and ludicrous tricks!

Revered from the pulpits.
And supported by the government!
With a clown assigned to 'play' ringmaster.
Who sets fire to their circus tent!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
