Bright As Neon - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You are,
So not ready for me.
I love adventure.
With it to live.
Emotions I have,
Are real to give.
And you are,
So not ready for me!

Saying things to make up,
I do not do.
I don't have to prove,
Anything to you.
Because you are,
So not ready for me!

I live for life.
Undenied.
I don't seek limits,
Then from them to hide.
I awaken before Sunrise,
Awaiting for each moment to live maximized.
And you are,
So not ready for me.

I'm going to live my life as bright as neon,
Illuminating from midnight until morning dawns.
And you are...
So not ready for me.
I'm going to live my life as bright as neon,
As if I'm living life to live not off but on!
And you are...
So not ready for me!
Take or leave it,
You can even disbelieve it.
But you are,
So not ready for me!

Up at dawn and with my neon on!
Life is to live it,
To shine as bright to give it.
Up at dawn and with my neon on!
Life is to live it,
To shine as bright to give it.
And you are,
So not ready for me!
