If I Could Turn Back The Time - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If I could only chase away,
Every disappointment that had come your way...
To stay and not appease,
Your expectation to be please.
I would.
If I could turn back the time,
To establish an earning of your trust.

If I could only chase away,
Your willingness to give attention...
To those who chose to interfere with us.
And the clues so obvious,
They planted a wedge that grew to bust us up.
I would.
If I could turn back the time,
To establish an earning of your trust.

If I could eliminate your doubts and fears,
That now appear to bring your tears...
And hold you close as I did in past years,
Oh I would!
If I could turn back the time,
To establish an earning of your trust.

But you had sought immediate satisfaction.
Believing an attachment to 'things',
Would bring you that.
But what began as an attraction,
Has entrapped you with an addicting lust.
A lust you now seek,
From anyone to deliver it regardless of trust.

And a trust for me,
Has always been a must.
A must I still seek!
But a dishonesty that knows no trust...
Has become an epidemic.
And my memories of your innocence,
Leaves me convinced...
A reminiscing of you once with it,
Comes from a childish lingering that wishes...
From nowhere and then in the distance,
To me I see you rush.

But...
You had sought immediate satisfaction.
Believing an attachment to 'things',
Would bring you that.
But what began as an attraction,
Has entrapped you with an addicting lust.
A lust you now seek,
From anyone to deliver it regardless of trust.

And I too...
Find myself entrapped as well.
Within memories I daily find I reminisce.
Of you once with an innocence...
Before your addiction to lust.
A lust you now seek,
From anyone who delivers it...
Regardless of trust.
And I would if I could turn back the time,
To enable your mind to find that trust in me.

Excuse me.
But...
Could you be someone I use to know?

'Nice try old man.
But trust me...
You aint got nuthin' I want you could offer.
Buzz off.'
