  4397.     

BACK TO EACH OTHER'S ARMS

shall you accuse us? dare. we know our defenses.
we were first,

the date of our meeting was earlier then.
years are too cruel for us,
we who learned love earlier
under the pine trees in Davao,
we who drank the nectar of flowers
in fantasy land of the bees


we are back into our arms
and you must understand how we must cope up with a love

that we lost, when youth was confused,
when our arms were too tight
we were choked almost to death
until we learned to make a distance

a distance which fooled us into oblivion,

we do not give up, we sting to the hope of
having new arms now
those that understand that love is always sweeter
the second time around

if the groan is loud enough
you may cover your ears.

  4398.     

back to february...

there is no point
returning
to that red day
of February

there is nothing
there
except a heap of
rotten leaves

underneath are the
feasting
earthworms
boasting about their
self-proclaimed
independence

themselves upon
themselves
even the sun is
not needed

  4399.     

back to insomnia

back to sleeplessness
i come to you, and we talk a lot till morning
no coffee or smoke, just plain talking
and i have lots of things to share with you
my lost boyhood
so much time has been wasted on so many preparations
what father wanted what pleased mother
what made grandpa proud
and things too personal that to you i could only tell
how i wish i can go back to bed and have a nice sleep till noon
but i am simply a kind of a sleepless man wanting to talk to you
and here you are
wanting what i am and listening
too much interest in what i am saying and what i have to say
this loneliness
and guilt and
this wish for death

i could tell you like me, but how can i ever hold you
you are around me, words and words, and images and empty spaces

  4400.     

back to its origin....

for now my streets
are silent
the pond has become
clear and
still again

back to the self
unfazed by all the changes
of the weathers.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
