In Full Camouflage - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Do what you do and get through it!
You made a choice and you knew it.
We could have had fun, romance and bliss.
But what I offered 'then'...
You say now you miss!
Do what you do and get through it!
What I had for you,
You blew it!
I am not on the scene to be again demeaned.
The chance of us meeting,
Is just an accidental greeting.
I did not seek you to hear your 'boo-hoos'...
Or tease you with a hope for a charity screw!
Do what you do and get through it!
When you left me in duress,
To pursue a new conquest...
You did what you did,
And abandoned me in stress!
Do what you do and get through it!
I had to without you,
Even though it was hard...
Knowing you tore apart my heart!
Do what you do and get through it!
Think of me as a mirage.
And I will think of you...
Masquerading your best in full camouflage!
