I Am Certainly Not Going To Leave It
If I can not say I love you,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
When I love you...
Because I do.
Or sending a message,
I did not intend.
Because what I feel...
Is not being comprehended?
Too much of it I give and send?
Then I need to take my love somewhere else.
Since I am certainly not going to leave it...
With anyone who can not recognize,
Or believe what my love is?
I am not playing let's make a deal!
What I feel is for real.
No one can afford,
To throw that kind of treasure away.
Or to be left to sit and rust!
Not this stuff.
I have come to value it too much!
