When Your View Broadens - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You misunderstand,
With a disconnection from one thing misunderstood.
My interest in you had been as a mate.
With a sharing deep in honesty.
That leaves nothing secret with a guessing,
To believe or perceive later when much too late...
Those feelings I had for you were not faked based.
Or something kept deceived,
To allow me from you I would eliminate to take.

And hopefully one day you will realize that as a fact.
To have it dawn on you when your view broadens.
With clouds diminished from your eyes that are cleared.
To know in your heart when it becomes re-attached,
Only fools seek to sleep with one who competes.
And I haven't been or ever will be a fool,
To feel that kind of desperation to share...
With a giving of my life with love and devotion.
