  2397.     

An Unmentioned Intention

If I stopped to qualify the love I felt for you...
You would not feel it as I'd wish you do!
Busy would I be describing emotions meant.
You'd see me in frustrations sent...
Explaining each line of a changing document.
Each time a change occurred,
An amendment scratched...
Attached to blur an unmentioned intention.
Replacing 'that' with yet another fact.
If I stopped to qualify this love for you...
It would keep us distant.
And you would not believe it,
If it goes unknown.
Leaving us to live alone with it not shown!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2398.     

And After I Take My Midnight Pee

The more I become satisfied...
I am no longer dissatisfied,
With a life I had taken for granted.
I feel an aloneness without complaints.
I feel a clarity disconnected,
From those who bitch!

It is as if my gratefulness,
I should hide and protect!
What if I am suspected...
Of a happiness accepted?
And a smile I flaunt,
Becomes a threat the desperate want?

Tossing and turning as I attempt to sleep...
Haunted by taunts,
My good feeling is about to be taken away by thieves!
So I get up to inspect my peacefulness.
Hoping to hold onto it for as long as I can!
And after I take my midnight pee...
I light a cigarette and have a cup of coffee.
Sitting I wonder...
'Why?
Why do I,
Feel so damn good about my life? '
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar

And Changed the Title Of It

I have this theory...
IF I wrote one poem,
And change the title of it...
Several times,
No one...
Would know the difference.
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
   
 

   
   
 

  2400.     

And I Know It's Me!

I've been looking for your replacement.
But that seems not likely to happen,
Anytime soon.

And I know it's me!

I say I've been seeking companionship.
To anyone who cares to listen.
To anyone who believes it,
I'll even repeat.
That I wish to have my lover's place...
Taken away,
By another...
Laying naked and waiting,
Upon 'our' sheets!

Where you and I would make love so good...
It left us wet.
And weakened until we slept.

'I don't think so! '
I know in my mind.
But my lips say to others...
'I'm ready to go now.
I'm not feeling too well.
Maybe I've had too much...
Wine?
I'm sure I will be fine.
And we can dine some other time? '

I've been looking for your replacement.
But that seems not likely to happen,
Anytime soon.

And I know it's me!
 
Lawrence S. Pertillar
