Metro Hit List - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
All my life I have sought affection.
And not getting that,
As it was craved.
Leaving me disillusioned to experiment.
Re-inventing my needs,
In many lustful ways.
Those hetero and homo visits,
Had frequently appeared on my metro hit list.
Increasingly with disappointments.
Although a couple I admit I could not resist.
Came at times to satisfy.
And yet in my mind's eye...
A one on one to come and gratify.
All my life,
I have sought affection.
The kind I liked and could not deny.
But those quick trips with tricks,
And one night stands to get things licked...
Were good enough for me.
When I needed to sweat without complication.
And sex climaxed done and detached,
Was sweeter when left.
And a goodbye was then applied...
With no committment to the act of it!
Committments, I admit...
Do scare me to death.
Or the holding of my breath,
If the performance expected...
Had not been my best!
It is easier to leave.
Than be with someone,
Wished to go away.
