What You Say

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

My eyes,
Stay open wide and clear.
Focused they are.
And not easily distracted.
Fixed they remain on you only.
To see what you say proven to me,
Is a caring that is real.
And not a possibility.

My feelings,
Are seldom released...
To be allowed touched by another.
But they are here.
More vulnerable than you can believe,
Them to appear.
And I want it from you to have it shown,
We are not having an affair or a fling...
You bring that I fantasize much overblown.

What you say,
I want to feel...
Proven.
And what you do,
I want it here with me to stay.

What you say,
I want to feel...
Proven.
And not too soon to go away.

My feelings,
Are seldom released...
To be allowed touched by another.
But they are here.
More vulnerable than you can believe.
So...
What you say,
I want to feel...
Proven.
And what you do,
I want it here with me to stay.

What you say,
I want to feel...
Proven.
And not too soon to go away.
