A Broken Heart Within

A broken heart within me knows,
What loneliness is...
When it is left to linger,
And slowly grows to wither in wishes!

A happiness living outside is dismissed.
For what it is.
Because it isn't felt,
From inside...
With a gladness that appears.

It's much too late to date a memory!
When fading ushers its leaving.
No one else can see it drift.
Yet an emptiness is hinged...
To a pain remaining that is grieving,
Within.

Time gone,
Like the wind blows,
Never returns again!
Not to visit in inquisitive sits...
With the one excited to be near,
In benefitted moments held dear.

It's much too late to date a memory!
When fading ushers its leaving.
No one else can see it drift.
Yet an emptiness is hinged...
To a pain remaining that is grieving,
Within.

A broken heart within me knows,
What loneliness is...
When it is left to linger,
And slowly grows to wither in wishes!

A happiness living outside is dismissed.
For what it is.
Because it isn't felt,
From inside...
With a gladness that appears.

Time gone,
Like the wind blows,
Never returns again!
Not to visit in inquisitive sits...
With the one excited to be near
In benefitted moments held dear.

A Keeping Of Their Protected Delusions

When people continue to seek,
A protecting of themselves...
With delusions and kept fantasies,
For them there will always be pain to gain...
And a remorse to confess providing no relief.
But addressing others to blame,
For a lack of facing the truth that will expose shame...
Is there for them to hide behind,
In escalated protests that defines their state of minds.

And church folks and those self-righteous!
Yes...
Church folks...and those self-righteous.
Those professing they have been blessed,
Are the first to provoke other folks on the side of truth...
With their desire to undermine and dismiss reality,
To have it permanently removed from minds to include...
While hoping deceptions and kept lies told to themselves,
Will effectively keep them isolated, protected and secluded.

But time is not on their side to find more fantasies.
Or more of it to waste in hesitation to self examine...
Why hands quickly move to cover over their ears!
Or worn blindfolds on their eyes to hide cried tears.
Yet mouths are wide open to tell and spread lies,
To anyone near who appears...
While inviting chaos, rising conflicts and lives to live in fear.
For the purpose to prevent truth to be heard.
And it made to everyone absolutely clear.

'Your rant?
It seems to be 'tinged' with anger.'

I am neither angry, bitter or seething with contempt.
But I will admit as I grow older,
Of being disgusted with the obvious.
And those with kept pretentions,
Who perceive their pretentiousness is effectively kept deluded.
Truth to fear will always keep reality defeated.

A Natural Part Of A Normal Life

Incredible it is.
But not yet to achieve unbelievable status.
These events seem to happen.
And too often back to back.

'What?
You've discovered mustard on your sandwich?
And you've requested mayo? '

No.
Not quite 'that' serious.
But there are people who will publicly admit,
And with the enthusiasm of children...
Of finding time and resources to chase a speeding object,
Claimed to be the size of Manhattan.
Travelling eighty-six thousand miles a minute through space.
To then land a device to examine it to gather information.
Send that information back to where it is being monitored.
With it to be announced they 'believe' water is on it.

'The wheat is dry isn't it? '

What wheat?

'On your sandwich.'

Listen.
But these same 'wizards' can not or will not,
Research a solution to end pollution.
Uncover ways to prevent corruption or crime.
Discuss the reason why racism exists.
Or that connected to people losing their minds.
Nor can they stop hunger, homelessness...
Diseases, greed or the presence of selfishness,
Right here on Earth.
But thirst they do for threats and fear.
And the appearance of more ignorance.

'What's the problem?
Who said what to you today?
Or looked at you with a raised eyebrow? '

And...
These are the people who will kill to prove,
They are more intelligent than others.
The best minds in the entire Universe they are.
Or so they want this to be believed.
And they are the ones treating others with wishes,
To correct these inequities like lepers.
As if they were the ones crazed and out of their minds.

'I suppose you defend them to say they are not? '

Who me?
Oh no.
Why should I offend those with common sense.
Are you kidding?
Afterall...
What's travelling through space millions of miles away,
Is much more of a priority...
Than my neighbor chasing someone with a gun,
To do before the crack of dawn with screaming going on...
Is more acceptable to me as a natural part of a normal life.
Why would I want to offend anyone with kept pretentions?

'Good.
So what else is new on your side of the fence? '

Nothing much.
The usual.
You're right.
This wheat is dry.
And where is the lettuce?
I specifically asked for a slice of tomato.

'Send it back.
Or just don't eat it.'
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

A Person's Worth Is Invaluable

A person's worth,
Isn't in their ability...
To obtain worldly possessions.
Or in the quality of them.

Can that person nourish others,
With encouragement?
Can that person be a true friend...
When the time for being one,
Shows what kind of skin...
That person 'is'
And exposes from within.

Being able to spend cash,
And make a quick dash on trips...
Or do a name dropping of notables,
Doesn't mean a thing...
If a person is negligent,
To extend heartfelt feelings...
Not too many can express or mention.

A person's worth is invaluable,
When a genuineness appears...
To surface time and again.
And that is proven to be dependable,
Without a doubt or a need to question.

Can that person nourish others,
With encouragement that does not end?
A person's worth will unearth,
Who and what comes first...
Regardless of those impressions made,
Someday that will fade...
Long after established ties with others,
Have remained to stay!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
