Everyone Of Us (No One Is Exempt)

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

People.
Everyone of us stay to keep in touch,
With our insecurities.
No one is exempt.

People.
Everyone of us can become flustered.
And frustrated with wishes someone comes,
To understand what it is we keep secretly.
No one is exempt from feeling kept deep.

People.
And we all are 'that'.
Whether we do or do not straddle fences,
To agree or disagree...
When our emotions come close to being attacked.
No one is exempt from defending our own backs.

And people like to receive and get,
A compliment or shown appreciation...
Said and meant with expressed sentiments.
To feel it real with meaning to believe.
No one wants to think they have been,
Flattered unnecessary just to deceive.

'I like 'you' for 'you'.
Just as you are.'

~Why?
Who told you to tell me that?
What do you want from me?
When did your like for me start to begin?
And 'how' are you going to convince me,
It's love? ~

'WHOA.
I said I LIKED you. Not LOVED you.'

~I see.
So I'm not good enough,
For you to feel that, huh? ~

People.
Everyone of us stay to keep in touch,
With our insecurities.
No one is exempt,
For wanting something to mean much more...
To then decide,
How to rate and place a score to ignore or accept.
With a doing to check over preferences.
