She Is Evil Lit

Her beauty is surfaced...
And when she smiles,
There are traces of evilness...
She tries to hide.
Once outside.
But under her makeup,
She can not erase...
What lies hidden deeply,
Behind that pretty face.

Bitterness concealed under a false grin.
Her smile is fixed,
Without one movement on her lips.

And she speaks through clinched teeth...
Like a trained ventriloquist.
But her eyes hold a light.
Brightly...
That is evil lit!

Her beauty is surfaced...
And when she smiles,
There are traces of evilness...
She tries to hide.
But under her makeup,
She can not erased.
How she holds onto...
Every pain and hurt felt in her life,
Every sacrifice is there.
From hair shampooed...
To her fixed glare.

And reminding anyone who witnessed this...
She was not the one,
Anytime soon...
Who would forget what it took,
To arrive to the reception of
Unwelcoming stares.
But she doesn't care.
Whatever that was good soured.
And it was not to her benefit.

She now knows who she is today.
She knows how to convey her beauty.
And to who what to say.
She knows she is...
Inside with tears.
She knows she is...
Inside,
Evil lit.

She Is The Best Qualified

Whether she is Latino,
African-American.
Caucasian white!
Or anything they decide to be...
Day or night.
Chinese, Korean, Arab...
Homo, lesbian or transvestite!
Hypocrite or hemorphodite!
She is the best qualified.
Like most folks of color.
If it wasn't for that ignorance used...
This country would not be experiencing,
Its current downslide!
Or racial abuses used,
From the onslaught of insecurities!
She would make a terrific supreme justice.
And perhaps...
With too many over qualifying credentials!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

She 'Is'...A Child Of God

I stood and observed her,
Searching for disgarded soda cans.
And picking through trash,
From a downtown corner garbage bin!

And as I observed her,
People waiting at a bustop...
Would laugh and begin to mock.
And she would return to them,
A warm inviting grin.

And observing this I began to think,
How peaceful she appeared.
With hair fresh and netted to keep in place.
And a face...
Beautiful and radiantly clear.

She knew 'something' immediately I felt,
Deep within me.
This woman knew exactly who she was.
And in her eyes...
There was not a sign shown she was in denial.

This woman knew exactly what happiness was.
And from where she directly obtained it!

Helpless she appeared.
But a few that observed her,
Like I did...
Knew,
What she kept inside of her endeared!

She did not have to be convinced!
She knew,
She 'is'...
A child of God!

She Knows Not

She is the mistress,
of his feelings.
Lay bare he does...
and stare out of heat mist windows.
Capturing moonlight,
on his skin with wishes to be touched.

She is the mistress,
of his feelings.
Unapologetic are rays carried,
from him he thrusts.

He trusts that she
will someday receive his yearning.
He burns in hunger longing...
And she knows not of his need!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
