Seeking To Receive
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
As if it is enjoyed.
A specialty perfected that you do.
And it is not that I am cruel,
Pointing that out to you.
But you do it as if...
It is a gift from you I accept.
With an expectation from you I get.
As if it is by you enjoyed.
And I sit with you wondering...
If it is my patience given,
You wish to see from me...
Before you decide,
That's the thrill you came seeking to receive.
