  4397.     

do not read this poem...

this poem is sad

it is the picture of a 12-year old boy with bruises on his head
blood oozes from his nose
his lips are swollen like a bloated fish poisoned on the river

his eyes look nowhere
like a light house turned off

do not read this poem when you are far away from your home

you may remember
one of your sons....

  4398.     

do not rest on the laurels of your head

we get old
the laurels mean no more
they become irritants
to the lines in our forehead
we finally let go
of these decors
we take the chances of
negating fame
embracing the privacy
of the walk
beside the hills
feeling the stones on our bare feet
touching the winds
and listening to its roars
wading to the waters
getting wet
and then take the much missed
plunge

we wish we are gone somewhere
to places
where no one finds us
where we look at no shadows
we stare
at the sunset
and then find the silence of
the coming darkness

perhaps the moon shall be full
perhaps the stars will gather in magnificence

perhaps we can love again
loneliness like the grass that we cannot uproot
amidst the daisies
they become part of us
they become us
in love and tolerance

  4399.     

do not reveal everything

my love
do not reveal everything

keep the mystery
be just a shadow under the moon

on a clear night
be just the star behind some coverings of clouds

do not be too near me
neither too far

let there be a little distance between us
let us keep it that way

unrevealed not fully undressed
a little silk cloth on your breasts and your groins

oh my, i am filled with desire
you're sexier when concealed

desirable as ever
like the way i caress the tips of your hair
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  4400.     

Do Not Say Goodbye

i have not met you
and then you tell me that you are suffering.
you keep it a secret to your family and then
you cannot help it but tell them, the pain must be known

someone still does not know who you really are
and we keep that secret and i shall not reveal it
it is my respect to you and your pain
i have offered some prayers, and then perhaps i shall offer flowers

i have not seen you in pain
i have always imagined you smiling and taking time with the flowers in the
park

how many years? it was not that long
to really forget and simply dismiss what we shared as
nothing but
a brief encounter and
without any significance at all

i have not lost you because i will
not lose you
we decide what we forget
and remember.

do not say goodbye, there is no such thing
between friends.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
