I Do Wonder About This
I do not harbor or solicit,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Any perceptions that may distrust you.
Although I have noticed your persistence,
In eroding those perceptions...
You believe I might and should have,
To refuse those deceptions...
You to me would like to introduce,
With no regard shown to me at all.
Just as long as I pretend I am not affected,
By a preference you wish I should depend.
I do wonder about this...
Are you asking me to trust your deceptions,
With a more obvious devotion and loyalty...
To you known?
Are you asking me to consider re-evaluating,
Those perceptions of distrust I do not harbor...
To enable you to diminish my peace of mind.
Which is it?
