Something Within Them Connected

They would walk around,
With heads held down.
In passing,
I told them all...
They were beautiful.

They stopped to look up at me.
As if something heard,
Had been a first occurrence.
And the clouds departed,
From their eyes.

Smiles appeared upon their faces.
Erasing a sadness.
And all traces of it!
They believed what I saw.
And shared that between themselves.
Within them...
The Sun soon reflected.
Something within them connected.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Something You Don't Have to Read

You will never comprehend or feel
Depths of emotion experienced...
If that is not your wish.
To exploit yourself like this!

In the selection of each word...
Chosen for this poem,
You can decide to rest your curiousity.
This is being composed to take a different turn,
Upon a new road of a personal concern.

An expectation is not encouraged!
For you to decide if I should be bland,
Or flourish thoughts to crop upon a topic!
And whether or not it should be profound or grand.

But it is hoped,
You do not live a life promoting abstinence
From deep feelings felt.
Or deny yourself an appetite,
To explore sincerety without premeditation!
Hesitating initiates guilt that can overwhelm,
Those out of practice!
Or those relaxed and dressed in kilts!

'I'm looking for rhyme...
Not reason!
And I may not be doing neither!
Since it has been a while,
I have been under anesthesia! '

This is not weakness to muffle,
Seeping from a heart that feels.
Nor does it diminish a strength...
One has to boast about with zeal!
If what is felt is real,
Let it flow!
Whether rehearsed or not,
Let it go!

Others do not have to know!
And 'this' composition when completed...
Is something you don't have to read...
To seek confirmation or validate,
That which exists and feeds your need!
Although I hope it pleases,
Those who enjoy these brief mental teases!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Something You've Done

You know what you are.
Did my validation,
Confirm your findings?
Did you take a survey...
From those whose opinions you trust?
Was there a collective thought about you...
That boosted your ego up?
Or was any reality gained...
To refrain from making excuses?
Something I was never taught to do,
While living in the projects.
And in poverty too!
But you know what you are!
Unfortunately you don't like what you see.
And what is observed is of your making!
A sense of living out your own fantasies.
Something you've done and now can not believe.
It will help if you awakened from your faking.
Your dramatics have bored,
And have become ignored!
Although that task of hiding behind a mask,
May for you be heartbreaking!
But removing shallowness from your mind,
Will not be shattering or Earth shaking...
At all!
Not for those who have not overdosed on you.
And can see right through,
That crumbling wall you seem to think
Some can not see you for you!
And those tired attitudes you cling to!
It's about 'life'!
And how others are living theirs...
Is not being consumed by thoughts of you!
This too I am sure you will not believe!
No one I know think of you as their dependency!

Somethings Change, You Know?

Are you still doing what you've been doing?

'I never think of it until I'm reminded.
And you've been reminding me of it,
For more than 60 years.'

'Hey, what can I say?
I'm just checking.
Somethings do change, you know?
Some are born to do what they do.
And some do things with a doing,
Never to be aware of it.'

Yep.
I know.
Thanks for reminding me.
'Some' things do...
Have a way of changing.
Don't they?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
