With No Excuses - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

With no excuses.
Or made attempts of pretense,
To hide in my heart to expose and show.
What I feel is revealed.
And to those who refuse to admit,
They have more inside of them existing...
Than a cold unreachable emptiness.
To give yet expect to get from others love.
