Severing To Free Themselves - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Getting involved in situations,
Affecting the lives of others.
And from their perspective,
Is the only information one gets...
To begin a stirring up,
Of a flowing of empathy...
That seems to be professionally solicited.
Or remarkably finessed by one skilled.
Try saying that in one breath.

Not Literally.

To later discover like duped others,
Fantasized depictions were given...
To enhance a reality,
Now without question...
Noticed to be absent from one's mind.
Where these episodes have been coming from,

Is a situation to walk away from,
IM-'with no mistaking it'-MEDIATELY!

Oh yeah!
Forget about involvement or being mixed in it.
Not with people like this.
One day soon,
Many will discover others have also chosen,
A severing to free themselves as quick as it is possible,
From emotional leechers to leave them be to be gone for good.

    poetically intellectually written, as usual. what u gift to PH is aweome. i've been here over 6 years, and some fools ask me to read 'they' stuff. i'm no Professor.
    i just read and respond from my bi-polar mind. i want to be critiqued and not critique. i'm gonna tell them to ask u... what u think. just kiddin'. take care.
