Revealed And Exposed - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There is nothing.
Absolutely nothing at all,
That compares to the repair...
Of a broken heart that has been mended,
By an act that has revenged that.
Especially when it has been discovered,
Lies told by others have been revealed and exposed.

And I would rather not find myself ever again,
With people like that...
Who would create havoc just for laughs.
I hate what it does to me internally.

'That would make me angry too.
What does it do to you? '

It makes me change.

'Change?
How?
What do you mean by that? '

I'd rather not discuss or think about it.

'I think I understand.
But...
What do you mean when you say,
It changes you?
HOW do you change?
You get upset?
Do you get...
WHOA.
AHHHH. AHHHH...
Mommy. Mommy?
God!
AHHHH.'

Would you stop that.
I told you...
I didn't want to think about it.
I told you...
I hate what it does to me.

'Okay.
Okay.
I believe you.
Don't 'ever' do that again.
WHAT was 'that' behind you?
And that look on your face.'

Didn't I tell you,
I didn't want to think about it?
You're just like a child.
You can't accept what someone says,
To leave it alone and be done with it.
