Ode To The Sexes Axed From An Ex - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

To give is to receive.
Yet the giving does not guarantee,
A getting with it given in return to expect.
Especially if one believes,
They are owed a shown respect to accept.
Just for the tolerating periods of rejection.
That ultimately ends,
When one has been axed from an ex.
And eventually feels relieved,
That what one had felt suspected...
Is freed from attempts to prevent,
A disconnection to move on with no regrets.
As one discovers others with their druthers,
A shared ode to the sexes axed from an ex...
Find themselves joined to express,
Experiencing to address a familiar similarity.
