I'D Rather Be Loved - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I'd rather be loved,
Than to be painted...
As somebody that I aint,
To then be tainted.

I'd rather be loved,
Than to be sainted.
As someone that's depicted,
In a way to be shamed.

And by...
The light of the moon,
I want to be seen as the person that I am!

And by...
The dawn until noon,
I want to be seen as the person that I am!

I'd rather be loved...
Under bright lighted moon.
And,
Seen to be the person that I am.

I'd rather be loved...
From the dawning 'til noon.
By somebody who completely understands.

I'd rather be loved...
Under bright lighted moon.
I'd rather be loved...
From the dawning 'til noon.
And...
By that one who knows and understands.

I'd rather be loved...
From the dawning 'til noon.
And,
When night falls we know there's no demands.
And...
When night falls we're there and understand.
And...
We know what we do and what we can.
