Maybe I Leave My Eyes In The Skies Too Long - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I can't have my feelings just be up for grabs.
To let somebody have!
Who would I be fooling?
Only myself.

I can't sit just wishing to kiss anybody glad.
To have that kissing had.
Who would I be fooling?
Only myself.

Maybe I leave my eyes in the skies too long.
Hoping that somebody for me comes along.

I can't have my feelings just be up for grabs.
To let somebody have!
Who would I be fooling?
Only myself.

I can't sit just wishing to kiss anybody glad.
To have that kissing had.
Who would I be fooling?
Only myself.

Maybe I leave my eyes in the skies too long.
Hoping that somebody for me comes along.
To make my heart go thumping,
After many months of nothing jumping.

Maybe I leave my eyes in the skies too long.
Hoping that somebody for me comes along.
To make my heart go thumping,
After many months of nothing jumping.
Maybe I leave my eyes in the skies too long.

I can't sit just wishing to kiss anybody glad.
To have that kissing had.
Who would I be fooling?
Only myself.
Maybe I leave my eyes in the skies too long.
Hoping that somebody for me comes along.

I can't have my feelings just be up for grabs.
To let somebody have!
Who would I be fooling?
Only myself.
Maybe I leave my eyes in the skies too long.

Maybe I leave my eyes in the skies too long.
Who would I be fooling?
Only myself.

Maybe I leave my eyes in the skies too long.
Who would I be fooling?
Only myself.

Maybe I leave my eyes in the skies too long.
