You Want To Win, Place 'And' Show

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

I want to share with you.
Not compete.
Was it my giving of unconditional love,
A sign to leave you believing...
I had submitted to the playing,
Of games and tricks...
To have my heart involved in this?
I want to share with you.
Not compete.
And if this is the kind of relationship you wish,
You need not consider me...
As a suitable opponent to show others you can beat.
Since this love I have to give,
I will not allow anyone to defeat.
I want to share with you.
Not compete.
And you've made it obvious to me...
You want to be perceived as a winner.
With a doing as you wish in and outside a relationship,
To have others believe I follow as you lead.
And that's not what I am seeking to fulfill my needs.
But you? With a doing to others to prove...
You want to WIN, PLACE and SHOW,
To let others know you can do this...
Alone.
