Miscast As Your Character - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Don't...
Think about you,
Crossing my mind.
You've killed off that time.

No don't...
Think about you,
Crossing my mind.
Or who has my time.
With you not to find.

Suspicions pushed me out of your view.
And you...
Thought I could be messin' around.

Suspicions pushed me out of your view.
And you...
Were the one to be found,
Messing around.
Using me. Abusing me.
To be your clown.

So don't...
Think about you,
Crossing my mind.
Or who has my time.

You made me feel it quite a lot,
Miscast as your character.
You made me feel it quite a lot,
Mopey, doped and fooled.
Yes you made me feel it quite a lot,
Miscast as your character.
To make me feel it stupid to do.

So don't...
Think about you,
Crossing my mind.
That you wont find.
You've killed off that time.

No please don't...
Think about who's spending my time,
This time.
'Cause I've turned down that part to play,
To portray.
'Cause I'm not gonna have it that way.

So don't...
Think about you,
Crossing my mind.
You wont.
And don't.
'Cause,
I've turned down that part to play.
You'll find...
I've turned down that part to play.
You'll find...
That character today I don't play.
