  2397.     

By Invitation Only

If the murmurs were pointless in their renderings,
There would be few to feel offended.
But since they are not.
And begin to peel the scab off ignored wounds...
Pretensions are not that enjoyable.

Of course this brings back those memories.
And many prefer to believe they go unseen,
Hopping on one leg.
Or bleeding profusely...
During their 'By Invitation Only' cocktail parties.

~And how did YOU get in here? ~

'Through the door.
Why?
Was there another way? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2398.     

By the Comfort of It Given

Caught to be wrapped up tight too often...
And too much,
On edge and distant.
Resisting to admit...
There are issues.

With some kept,
To qualify one's purpose.
One's wish to be burdened by self conflict.
And a remorse that bites...
To expose a bitterness.
One often invites to a welcomed visit.

A patience unconditional...
That comes to one in love,
With someone like this...
Usually goes unnoticed.

To eventually be dismissed,
And taken for granted...
By the comfort of it given!
Until it is gone.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2399.     

By The 'Old You' The New You Knew

There is no special wand
To hand out and wave...
To dissolve obstacles
Blocking your way.
You may not like it...
But the path you're strolling on
Is the path 'you' pave...
Constantly raving about what's being done!
How much of it did you do?
How much was labor?
How much of it fun?

Or is that just as much of a mystery,
As your interests in your neighbors' business?
Leaving yours mismanaged as you manage theirs!

I wouldn't rely on anyone,
To help you figure 'you' out!
And that's not going to happen...
Not as long as you are spending time
Trying to trace your place,
In someone else's footsteps!
Better than they've done themselves.

Do something different!
Run away from yourself.
Forget being followed!
Allow yourself to discover new surroundings!
Don't look back...
Fast is this magic track that attracts!
You'll catch up in time.

And by then...
You might find your mind has broaden!
Enough not to wait to be pursued...
By the 'old you' the new you knew!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2400.     

By The Shift Of Winds

I...
Am not surprised,
By...
The shift of winds.

I,
Have noticed seasons...
Changing to exchange,
From how I knew them then.

And it doesn't seem that long ago,
Spring would bring an end to Winter.
Or when Fall began,
Leaves of the trees would magically be colored.

I...
Am not surprised,
By...
The shift of winds.

I,
Have noticed seasons...
Changing to exchange,
From how I knew them then.

People then had broad smiles,
Anticipating awaited holidays.
And I remember all the while...
How a love of life with so many stayed.

And it doesn't seem that long ago,
And it doesn't seem that long ago,
Spring would bring an end to Winter.
Or when Fall began,
Leaves of the trees would magically be colored.

But...
So cold remain most shoulders,
Today.
By the shift of winds.

People then had broad smiles,
Anticipating awaited holidays.
And I remember all the while...
How a love of life with so many stayed.
But...
So cold remain most shoulders,
Today.
By the shift of winds.
Cold...
Remain most shoulders,
Today.
By the shift of winds.
Today.
By the shift of winds.
Cold shoulders,
By the shift of winds...
Remain.

I...
Am not surprised,
By...
The shift of winds on display,
Today.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
