  11997.     

That Road Has Been Traveled

That road has been traveled.
Long before your carefully placed steps.
Hesitated to test the paved,
And manicured path you take.

That road has been traveled.
And once aligned and adorned with gravel.
Rocks and other obstacles thrown.

If it seems,
I am not in sync...
With others who shower you,
Best wishes and tons of sympathy...
I am not going to do!
Because your shoes are too tight.
And an ingrown toenail bleeds and bites.
You are right!
I 'am' out of that synchronicity.

I don't want you to believe or 'think'
I am not with empathy!
I want you to 'know'...
I have none!
On you,
To spare.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

That Rollercoaster Ride I Rode

I'd like to keep,
You...
On my mind.
It's satisfying all the time.

And I'd like to keep,
You...
In my dreams.
To wake up and to see,
You...
Here with me.

I feel that load...
Off of my shoulders.
When you look glowing sunny and bright.

And I'm glad I know,
That...
Rollercoaster ride I rode,
Has ended.

I'd like to keep,
You...
In my dreams.
To wake up and to see,
You...
Near to me.

And I'd like to keep,
You...
On my mind.
It's satisfying all the time.
To know that I am yours and you're mind,
For the rest of our lives.

I'm glad I know,
That...
Rollercoaster ride I rode,
Nonstop until I couldn't let go...
Has finally ended.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  11999.     

That 'Rubbing' Done That Has Appalled You

If you really want to feel offended by anything done,
To you that is believed is directed.
Be you offended,
By being deceived, manipulated and used.
By those who have thrown that up in your face.
Then compared that to something you've heard,
That you have felt...
Rubbed you the wrong way.

Now...
With that 'rubbing' done that has appalled you,
Connect that something said...
To that which is actually happening to you.
On a daily basis that you have blindly accepted.
With that false faith you project to protect.
That accepts being deceived, manipulated and used.
What words have you heard has directly affected your life?

The words you don't like?
Or the people honest enough to say them?

Now...which do you prefer when being stabbed in the back?
Being able to selected the instrument used?
Or do you have a preference for a certain color?
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

That Search Has Been Agonizing

The hardest thing for me to learn,
Was to say, 'No.'
And after I learned how to say it...
It became difficult,
Not to premeditate its use.

Now I am seeking someone,
To teach me...
When the use of saying 'no'
Has its disadvantages.
And so far...
That search has been agonizing.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
