Prized And Once Cherished - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Where do open eyes,
Turn to find those undisguised?
Contact is pointless,
When a vacancy is known!
And looking away...
Into a desert reflecting similarites
Is shown,
A lonely task awaits ahead.
An emptiness is carried,
For a wish to see sparks of life.
A smile or two accepting,
With renewed vision!
But the journey of one,
On a mission to overcome isolation...
Continues on a path in search,
For identities recovered.
After months experiencing,
The mind slaughter now that has passed.
To leave those observed empty in bewilderment,
Sitting beside rusted treasures.
In tears!
And clutching onto overdue tax bills!
Enduring the heartbreaking loss...
Of a prized and once cherished,
Good credit rating...
They could no longer privately keep,
To secure their fading statures held...
That glowed,
Upon their now disturbed and troubled faces!
