Love Door

You want all my lovin'.
But just pieces I get.
Just a piece to treat me.

You want my lovin'.
But a tease you give me.
A piece you think will treat and please.

I...I,
Don't like it that way.
No.
I...I,
Can't stop it when you start.
Feeling like a dope,
On a rope choked.

And I...I,
Try to fight it,
But I'm hooked.
With a tail you wag...
You like to see mine,
Hang and drag.

I...I
Don't like it!
I...I
Can't fight it or try.
You know I want more...
But my needs you ignore.

You want all my lovin'.
But just pieces I get.
And,
I...I
Don't like it!
I...I
Can't fight it or try.
You know I want more...
But the teasing of the piece that treats you keep
To weaken me,
Is kept in my mind...
Behind your love door!
And,
I...I
Don't like it!
I...I
Can't fight it or try.
The piece that treats you keep to weaken me...
With teases,
Is behind your love door.

You know I want what's more,
Behind your love door.

Love For Profit

Do it to feel established.
Get it to do while young and daring.
Do it for the love.
And not just the love for profit.
Profit stops. Love continues.

Those with noses prepared only to sniff,
From which the air they drift to where a dollar is...
Will fall out of love with few dollars left there to spare.
To know too late,
Having just love for profit to establish ends quick...
Without having long lasting happiness felt that fits.

'You have your things.
Shouldn't you have enough of them that sits? '

~But I can't get enough of them to keep me happy.~

'Oh?
Isn't that what you wanted to establish?
A love to pocket a profit to have your things.'

~My love to pocket just for profit,
Has left me feeling empty nonstop.~
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Love For Them Is Distanced

Hearts that have been broken apart,
Have need of mending...
To bring that to an end.

And those afraid to give love a start,
May have a reason...
To disbelieve,
In love at all.
Since love for them is distanced too far.
Or maybe they've had broken hearts,
To give love for them another chance...
Again!
When...
Disappointment always begins.

Hearts that have been broken apart,
Have need of mending...
To bring that to an end.
But...
Some have struck out before in love,
To know...
It takes two to tango.
And to be too entangled,
Is not a chance they'll dance that again.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Love Has Been Ripping Us Apart

At this point...
It doesn't matter...
Who did what that offended.
Or who begins our public arguments.

Let's just be done with this travesty.
Before we decide,
Love has been ripping us apart.
With a desire to choke each other's throats.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
