Needing Instant Pity - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You know I know
You think I'm indecisive.

I know you know
Inside I try to hide it.

Like a river flows so free
Until it empties into the sea.
I wish all the thoughts I had...
Were easy to be seen.
I'm needing instant pity!

You know I know
You think I'm indecisive.

I know you know
Inside I try to hide it!

If I said, 'Here is my life! '
Would you treat me very good?
If I gave you a reason to stay...
Would you promise that you could,
Always treat me better...
No matter what the weathercast?

You know I know
You think I'm indecisive.

I know you know
Inside I try to hide it.

Come what may
My needs are real to me.
I will pray to find another way...
To share with you my secrets,
If you will never leak them in dismay!

You gotta help me chase these storms away.
I hope this wish is bliss...
And not decay!

You know I know
You think I'm indecisive.

I know you know
Inside I try to hide it.

Like a river flows so free
Until it empties into the sea.
I wish all the thoughts I had...
Were easy to be seen.
I'm needing instant pity now.
Can you now instantly pity me?

I can not quit...
It sits and bothers me!
