Whether Or Not You Are Honest With Me Now - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You have allowed me to question your honesty,
For too long.
And for too long,
You have chosen to deceive.

Whether or not you are honest with me now,
Is not of an importance.
Not to me.
Nor will erase my apathy.
Or a priority that has increased,
To please my own needs.

With a total unconcerned,
About what it is you do.
Or caring less,
About what it is that is in the best of 'your' interest.

This is a fact.
Not an attitude.

For too long you have ignored my wellbeing.
With activities done by you to prove to me,
Your main objective,
Has been yourself.

And...
As times do change,
I have welcomed them.

You have allowed me to question your honesty,
For too long.
And for too long,
You have chosen to deceive.

Whether or not you are honest with me now,
Is not of an importance.
Not to me.
Nor will erase my apathy.
Or a priority that has increased,
To please my own needs.

I simply can not be stirred to excitement,
Over something that could have been shared...
By the both of us.
If you cared.
But you didn't.
And that...
You have made known as shown.
