Like One Does As You Did - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Like one does as you did.
You might have felt,
A doing of anything...
Without me around to witness it,
Would leave it far from my heart...
Not to feel to go undetected.
But a love I give with it to get,
Is beyond words confessed to admit expressed.
Or tossed and left to discover on a doorstep.
To betray like one does as you did.
Like one does as you did,
To think of me as a puppy trained to await...
For you to attach a leash to have me believe,
My loyalty is awarded whenever you appear...
After satisfying your temptations,
And I would not know you had deceived...
As you spent time trying to convince me,
Others you don't sneak to please...
Like one does as you did to do,
Which scent of your stupidity is best to leave ignored?
