If Superficiality Sells

If superficiality sells,
And the price for substance...
Stays out of reach,
For those finding it too complicated...
To rent or lease.
Or discover no one accepts,
Lay-away payments today.
What remains faked...
Will leave few left to argue,
Over the cost or the quality of it.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

If That Day Should Come

I am not as fragile as glass.
Nor is my heart,
Quick to stain as silk or satin.
Or in reluctance to speed the draining,
Of love I have for you that remains.
You are that essence that excites.
And overnight it seems to grow.
You have slowly become the nectar,
That has brightened my sunrising glow!
It shows...
I know this!

But you could shatter me...
If my love you dismissed.
And break me apart,
If you deny your lips...
To touch mine and kiss!

I can fall to wither...
Losing color like an Autumn leaf,
Crumpled with no life left to live!
If you leave without your key,
As a reminder you no longer wanted me.
And I could not find you around...
To beg your forgiveness!

Collapsed inside,
With torment beginning its visit.

And I will know right then...
When and where to begin my charade!
A performance I would struggle to delay.
If that day should come,
And someone else awakens you...
To find you theirs,
And gone from my dreams!

If that day should come...
To undo and split,
Dissolving
What we together have done.
Leaving me to portray a loneliness believed.
And rendered to convince myself of your absence!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

If That Is Done Now

Today...
Be aware of time,
As it is now.
Be conscious and forgiving,
Of what is done.
As if you have only one opportunity...
To escape, correct or ignore what takes place.

Tomorrow...
Be aware of time,
As it is now.
Be conscious and forgiving,
Of what is done.
As if you have only one opportunity...
To escape, correct or ignore what takes place.

Yesterday...
Wasting it wishing,
You had been more conscious...
Is why you have today.
There is always time to mend and correct...
If that is done now!
Since there is no other time like it is right now.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

If 'That' Is Kept Pursued

'Why does reality have no chance of surviving,
In a land where fantasy is worshipped...
And prioritized for all to understand,
Throughout one's life as a demand? '

Fantasy is worshipped in a land,
Where reality has no chance...
And is repimanded,
From birth as a command.

'Oh...
So there is no choice involved? '

Of course there is.
If one chooses to be deluded by truth.
And decides to become ostracized,
If 'that' is kept pursued!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
