I Have No Desire To See Our Worlds Collide

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

You have always said to me...
I lived in my own world.
And I did not object.
In fact...
I accepted what was 'then',
Your way to address...
My nonconformity.

And today you say to me,
I should express more empathy...
To you,
As 'your' reality...
Has increasingly ceased.
But I...
Have no desire,
To see our worlds collide.

Nor am I wishing,
To seek an approval that accepts my insights.
Just know this...
You have been right all along.
And I wish to keep things as is.
For me your assessment,
Has awarded me with benefits.

And I...
Have no desire,
To see our worlds collide.
Goodbye!
