Run All Out of Benefits of Doubt

Benefit of a doubt?
Do you realize how many benefits
Of doubt I've given out?
How many 'Oh well, that's okay! '
I've said to myself...
To chase those doubts away,
That cropped up to stay?
Sometimes everyday!
To relay to myself,
I understand...
In an understanding way?

Do you realize when I had been in doubt,
I would find myself excusing
A cause someone else brought about.
And then when I became angry...
I was the one to feel guilty,
From being fed nonsense
That would raise my voice then made to shout?

And now you ask me,
To give to you a benefit of a doubt?
Another one?

I've run out of benefits of doubt.
They are gone.
And so are you...
Free to move on!
I have no more in supply.
None for you to use or abuse...
Or deny I have not tried!

Get out.
While I still havean eyebrow raised to offer.
And you are more than welcome to have it!
And before you leave...
Please keep the keys!
New locks I've got,
Just to keep any benefits of doubt restored...
From you forever ignored and blocked!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Run Along

Stay your distance.
Remember,
You declared me crazed.

And I've been trying to keep that protected.
From your accepted normalcy...
That has the majority of you,
Walking around in a daze.

And I rather keep my 'craze'...
Safe and masqueraded.

Run along.
Return to your conformity!
Since that is where you say you belong.

And your assessment has been right.
While the life I live,
Has for me been all wrong.
I agree!

Now run along!
I wish to keep my peace of mind,
With me peacefully all day and night long!
For as 'wrong' as you perceive it to be.
Leave me!
C-ya!

Oh,
Before you go...
Thanks!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Run From Malaise

Run from malaise.
That vague sense,
Of lost vitality.
Don't let the chase of malaise,
Quicken with a pace,
That fades away your energy.

Run from malaise quickly!
And insist it does not exist.
Once malaise becomes recognized,
Difficult it is to resist.
Since malaise has a way of staying around.
With no getting rid of it.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Run Its Course

You are an excuse of miscalculations.
The patience I once afforded you...
Has long run its course.
When I said I divorced myself from nonsense,
That included yours as well.
The adolescence of immaturity...
Is the core of the nightmarish hell.
And I do not condone heat on my peace of mind!
My need is to provide substance.
And your needs are just to abuse the idea!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
