Content I Missed - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

When I first saw you,
I knew my search was over.
My heart from my head,
Began to disconnect.
And it took me years,
To piece together...
Content I missed.
With it to realize,
Only my eyes were satisfied.

Today...
I am not so quick,
To be hypnotized by lucious lips.
Rotating hips.
Long beautiful legs.
Or a smile fixed to victimize.

Today...
I just drool from the sidelines to find,
Better are my thoughts kept to pass.
With a leaving a behind in my mind,
No time given to reminisce.
Or contemplate wishes to revisit,
Disappointment.

Today...
I have found a much easier way,
To satisfy my fleeting desires.
And with it known to leave,
No questions to be asked.
