Keep It To Itch - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Keep it to itch.
Knowing if it's scratch,
That same itch wont come back.
Keep it to itch.
That feeling kept to get,
A wish to realize...
Until it has arrived.
Keep it to itch.
Don't rid of it.

Wanting with a yearning done,
Is difficult to hold.
Wanting for those dreams to come,
Don't let not one go.
To keep that craving wished,
So bad.
Don't scratch it 'til it's had.

Keep it to itch.
Whatever is imagined,
Until that dream is wished.
Keep it to itch.
Don't scratch it to forget.
