  5997.     

for you to love me

you must know
how a man's weight
is measured, his broad shoulders
the burden of this abdomen
and his thighs,
you must know how
a suitcase weighs
a muddy pair of boots
your feet must know
how to swear
how i
smell.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  5998.     

for you to trust me

for you to trust me
i must listen and keep the promise
about your love and your
new lover
not to tell about the fire
burning inside your hearts
and eyes
for you to trust me
i must not be the rain
or the sun
i must not be the river
to sing what you both have kept
as a secret
inside the chimney when the smoke
rises to the skies
i shall only watch
and keep the pains that both of you
too suffer

i have not told you
that in love
goes the joy
goes the pain
and now you must take them all
like water and sand
in your hand
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  5999.     

FOR YOU WHO CLAIMS TO BE THE OWNER OF MYSELF

It is shallow
i know, it is only skin deep

to be godly
i could have immersed myself
in that deep river
of blood where i could be
shaken
totally and panic calling for
help

but i like it here
sitting on the shallow part of this river
thinking only
about how drowning could be such a
horrible experience

since
(anyhow) the inevitable always comes
anyway
and for the meantime let me have my own time
relaxing myself

before you finally come
on time as
always.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  6000.     

for you, my dear, when you are so blank

white sheet. a paper. like you.
iwant to write something
just to fill this white sheet a little bit
some words. i can utter them.
but i like writing them
just to make this white sheet looking
full. like

'i love you'.

the rest need not be written.
i know you know and you know that i know.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
