Sold On Appearances

The way things 'are' on the inside,
For those who live this life...
As it is lived for them,
Isn't as it seems.
From the outside looking in.

Romancing what one thinks,
Does not always match to link...
With the reality lived and experienced,
Across a fence...
Constructed to protect and restrict,
With intentions meant.

The same can be said,
For an invisible brick wall.
We wish to believe what is there...
But what we imagine,
Is not there at all.
And answers to questions are often stalled.

If our perceptions of others were correct,
Would we live our lives more or less happier?
Would we then spend our time,
Requesting forgiveness?
Or would we lend a hand to our fellowman,
Knowing few skip down yellow brick roads!

Or would we find pavement under no one's feet,
Made to sparkle in bright blinding gold.
Even though all of us as sold on appearances.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Sold On Ridiculousness

There is nothing like feeding the mind by reading.
Or paying attention by listening.
And connecting these elements with observation.
There is nothing like it!

There is nothing that addresses comprehension,
Better than what has been mentioned.
But then again...

There will be those who will waste debate,
To satisfy themselves and their pretensions!
With discussions about the quality of the approach delivered.
And IF it 'twas handled with appropriate etiquette.
As relating to the current season.
And whether or not...
The credentials of the messenger impressed.

'All that just to pay attention to something? '

I've seen some folks sold on ridiculousness!
Based upon what color they were...
And how they were dressed.

'I'm willing to bet that's how this mess was created! '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Sold Without First Unwrapping

All that you see...
My head.
My eyes.
My lips.
My hands and arms.
My legs and feet...
Are equipped and prepared to examine.
And...yes,
Moving towards your direction.

However...
My mind,
And all that you may wish to feed it...
Is not easily bought,
To accept anything you think...
I will buy to purchase from you to sell,
As sold without first unwrapping to inspect.
Un-uh. Oh no...hand me a microscope!
I have suffered from buyer's remorse before.

This time...
I want to see dates.
Manufacturer's suggested price.
Along with shipping and handling charges,
AND testimonials from previous users.
With a count!

'And what do you take me for? '

I'll take you for the rest of my life!
But first...
Here is my check list I wish to have completed,
BEFORE I make any decision!
I am not going to rush to close any deal.
Not this time.
Is that a weave or is that natural?

'EXCUSE ME? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Soldier Me

I want someone to soldier me.
And protect my nights,
With the ammunition of love.
No one dared or could penetrate.

With a sheltering of my wants and needs,
Relieved of fear or mystery of feedback static.

I want someone to soldier me,
As if contracted to reveal bravery.
Enough to know I am tough as they can be.
And standing up faithfully to deliver unbelievable,
Devotion!

I want someone to soldier me.
With a sheltering of my wants and needs.
Relieved of fear or mystery of feedback static.

To ask.
To tell.
And be given,
Passion.
Seen, felt and uncamouflaged in action!

I want someone to soldier me,
As if contracted to reveal a bravery uncommon...
To capture the wishes of my submissiveness.
And piercing through armor to find me tender!

I want to be bare,
There...
Held and in a hold patrolled.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
