Like A Tree That Sits

Like a tree that sits...
To be observed and taken for granted.
I am here.
Not to intellectualize my emotions.
But to feel them as experienced.

Not to convince!
But to know that they exist.
Whether you see them exposed bared.
Or not!
Or whether I keep them within.
They do not stop.

I live to feel every one of them!
And changing my outer appearance...
Does not excuse the fact,
They are intact.

To be shown.
Beneath an exterior...
One soul only at a time condones.
And inside me this is known.
Like a tree that sits,
Rooted.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Like A Validated Rose

I feel emboldened when I'm touched.
Like a validated rose.
And even though my thorns may prick,
Always there comes along someone...
Attracted to my scent.

More radiant I feel I should show myself.
But I do my best not to overdo it.

I want to be sniffed in the air to be whiffed,
Not picked and clipped to be placed in a vase...
Until my essence just fades away.
I don't want it to be known,
I am not without limitations.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Like A Welcomed Habit

You still have no clue what you are dealing with.
And from the very beginning,
I provided the evidence.

When are you going to accept?
Have I ever boosted with brash bravado?
I don't have to!

Would someone who drops clues,
Do that?
I think not!

You still have no clue what you are dealing with.
And from the very beginning,
I provided the evidence.
That's how empathetic I can be at times.

And it is perfectly fine,
Others are convinced of an ego attachment.
I'm closer to you than I am to that.
That's why I want you enjoying me,
Like a welcomed habit.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Like All Of Their Other Excuses

One man has been in their presence,
For just a few years.
However,
Their policies have been eroding for decades.
And yet a crisis that besets them...
They claim he has caused.
By exposing their flaws and misdeeds.
This they wish,
Those absent of a consciousness...
Will accept and believe.
Like all of their other excuses,
Laid at someone else's doorstep.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
