So Unsure! Of Love - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I can not trust that love,
You claim you have for me.
There is something incomplete about it.
Something that leaves me,
Feeling insecure and empty.

If it is true you do love me...
Why do I perceive there is dishonesty?

I can not trust that love,
You claim you have for me.
When we aren't together...
Your whereabouts is kept discreet.

And I have known true love before.
So much of it I had,
When it was given...
I became bored.

I ignored that one who gave me love.
And unconditional it was.
But it wasn't enough.
I thought I needed more.
So I was the one then...
Who chose to explore.

I can not trust that love,
You claim you have for me.
There is something incomplete about it.
Something that leaves me,
Feeling insecure and empty.

If it is true you do love me...
Why do I perceive there is dishonesty?
Why is it you,
I can not trust or believe?
Am I experiencing now...
What my true love 'then'
Felt from me?

And I have known true love before.
So much of it I had,
When it was given...
I became bored.

Too immature I was!
Too quick to leave,
And close love's door.

Too immature I was!
And today,
So unsure!
Of love.
And its required expectations.
