In The Market For Idiots

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Whatever you can not find,
In my heart
To remind you of another!
You have yet to discover me.
Or my needs and wants that go unreceived.
And yet you believe I should be pleased,
That you have selected me...
As an appropriate alternative,
To plead to you to marry?

I will say this...
You have nothing of value,
I choose or wish!
What makes you think I am without depth?
The one who comes for 'me'...
Will not think of my love
As a replacement that can be erased,
By someone escaping from someone else!
I will not be disgraced...
Or put aside on anyone's shelf!

You are obviously in the market for idiots! ?
