I agree with you.
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Time and people do change.
And after spending years,
With a patient crying of tears...
Hoping you'd accept your life as it is.
And not charading,
Through a series of masquerades.
I am not surprised at all,
To hear you say you have changed.
I wish you the best.
To go through another one of your confessions...
I am not willing to be that fool again.
To witness another persona...
You wish to introduce and test.
And hear you profess with sweet innocence,
Your undying love.
Or the aggravation suffered from your arthritic knees.
Thanks to you,
I have no need to use painkillers.
