  2397.     

After All These Years

Turn around.
Don't show me your back,
Give me eye contact.
Stop staring at the ground.

You wanted me to be honest.
And honesty I've given.
You wanted me to give love complete.
I'm here to deliver,
Both bitter and sweet.

Don't shut me out!
Let me in.
Help me to understand.
What have I said...
For you to lower and shake your head?

If I am wrong,
Tell me now.
Open up and communicate.
Don't be like that.
I want to comprehend.
Don't give me a cold shoulder.
Over something I'm sure,
Wont happen again.
Can you for once not be so stubborn?
What did I say to offend?

Turn around.
Don't show me your back,
Give me eye contact.
Stop staring at the ground.

I was teasing when I said,
Your head is like cement!
But don't give me the silent treatment.
Or reason to initiate another argument.
Anything but that silence!
That silence you can prevent.
'Okay! Okay...you win! '
Again!
For 'whatever' it was...
That started this 'nonsense' of yours,
To begin!

'Nonsense?
You spent my last twenty dollars,
On lottery tickets?
And you say that is 'NONSENSE? '

YEAH!
But I won a hundred dollars.

'Why did you not say that in the first place? '

Well...
You still have such a terrific behind.
And after all these years...
I took a moment or two,
Of my time to bide...and ponder!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

After Becoming Enlightened

At one time,
I saw or could find...
No light at the end of the tunnel.
Today?
I remember my struggles,
Through a darkness I then accepted.
To reminisce the experience.
But after becoming enlightened,
With my eyes and mind brightened
Why would I want to relive a limitation?
Or wish to stay confined to that kind of comfort,
To do to know it had no benefit.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2399.     

After Being Guided

Being unable to see the forest for the trees,
After being guided to where that forest begins...
There is so much more than trees,
Out of one's perspective...
That an assistance with a helping to connect,
Painted colored dots to make clear those 'differences'...
Would be too late and a waste of time,
To clean one's attic of debris.

It's 'never' too late?
Well...
Unfortunately,
For a lot of folks...
This will not be a matter for them to confront to consider.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

After Being Raped Of Escapades

I use to sit and wish for my innocence back.
But after being raped of escapades by the facts of life,
I could no longer hang onto fading daydreams.
Or my lingering memories of doing that to escape.

And I was in no position to be delusional.
Since my youth was early abused,
By the reality of my environment.
And today I most miss any presence of honesty.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
