This One Is On Me

You want me to
What?
Endure your pain,
As an expression
Of my love and devotion?
You wait right there

'Where are you going? '

To get us both a psychiatrist.
Don't worry about it; the expense!
This one is on me.
Because I can not believe,
You are beginning to make sense.
That's how badly I need my head examined.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  13198.     

This Or That

You want me to understand...
This about you
And that about you
And this about you
And that about you.
And I'm understanding this...
Listening to you insist about that!
It is you that could give a rat's ass
About anything that doesn't include you!
And YOU don't understand this Or that,
About me...
Or if a tree 'pees' at all!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  13199.     

This Pace Made

You totally misinterpret,
The pace I keep.
Not one step do I make,
That is taken...
Has you in my mind to compete.
Or is there a thought given to your mission.
I have interests to pursue.
What about you?

This pace made,
Is not awaiting your notice.
Nor is this pace made,
Initiated in the origin of hesitation.
But is a motivation to focus my eyes on the prize.
With my own determination affixed to it!
To feel I am achieving 'something' that validates,
The time I've spent blessed in the appreciation of my life.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  13200.     

This Path I Walk Before Me

I understood,
The moment I opened my mouth...
You'd become upset,
By what was said that came out.
Premeditating impressions expressed,
Is not what my life is about.

Nor I am not here to protect,
You from the wilderness met.
Or will I carry your baggage...
On my back to ease your steps.

This path I walk before me...
Has no guarantee.
The unknown ahead...
Isn't easier to see.
Or allows me to breathe,
With more freedom to comfort...
Your insecurities.

What I am living is not a rehearsal.
For a performance that seeks your endorsement.
Or block from your ears,
A reality faced you can not bear to endear.
Nothing done that I do is on a practice run!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
