Remember? I Do! - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There is nothing more to you,
I can say with it displayed.
Or return from a yesterday,
An intention meant I then valued.
Although I have kept,
My respect for you unaffected.
And to waiver from it I have yet to let,
What I have kept to keep to be diminished.
Who I was in the past has not changed.

Remember...
I was not the one,
To listen to rumors gossiped.
Then taking what I had heard to spread,
With a doing of it to believe words said.
I wasn't the one to run back to you,
Prepared with judgements passed...
On you to do.

You made that decision that I should prove,
And with a doing...
Of a jumping through hoops to do backflips too,
To convince what I felt was honest and true.
Only fools will allow their minds to be tricked.
By others equally insecure and mentally sick.

There is nothing more to you,
I can say with it displayed.
Or return from a yesterday,
An intention meant I then valued.
However...
My trust to give to discover deceived,
Is no longer felt for you to receive.
And I didn't do that.
You did 'that' to me.
Remember?
I do!
