  5997.     

forget yourself

do you see life? try seeing life in me, i still have it, i keep it in my palm
it is warm and beating and soft and tender
try it with new things, as others do, buying a new fashionable coat
a glittering diamond ring for your loved one,
try literature, read a novel, read and write a poem and
yes, try too music, sing the songs of love
strum the strings of that spanish guitar, you hit the keys
of the piano, you fiddle with the violin, and strike the tight skins of the drums
with your fists and fingers

my friend this world is so rich, and simply throbbing with its
countless treasuresand pleasures
there are still so many beautiful bodies
and beautiful souls
out there waiting for you

(claire, do not think about promiscuity,
that is far from it, just think nicely about other bodies
and souls, relating to them and be with them
in peace and harmony as friends,
as fellows)

oh, they are so interesting, and at the end you shall be happy because by
then you have already forgotten the person that saddens you

you

yes you,

you must forget yourself, that is the secret of happiness.

  5998.     

forgetting a lot of things....

i apologize
to myself
since i easily
forget
and leave those
who have
been patiently
waiting for
me like
a passenger of
a train
waiting for hours
for me to be
taken
in
i forget the hour
i forget
that i am
a train
i forget altogether
time
and the passenger
and then i try
to recall
smoke passing
by my hair
smelling something
hazy
like a perfume
that i
think was there
before
a woman naked
or was it
a horse
running in the
fields of hay

foggy memory
sounds of rain on the month
of May
a friend writes
an email
i Google
a name
figuring out
who's there but it is
misty
smell of burnt
fish
on the fireplace
or was it
at the kitchen?

  5999.     

forgetting someone who loves you

i agree, it is like forgetting to turn off the light
at the rear door, the one who does not want to be made
important, the one who has always been at the backdrop
of your life,

the whole night it was on and then
the following morning you see it
still lighting

but then you turn it off and
there you remember how is it to be so faithful
and yet forgotten
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  6000.     

forgetting something so important

why am i here?
must i have forgotten
the reason why
am i
here? am i destined
for something
greater
than my mind?
or my heart?
have i forgotten that
i have a soul?
a spirit engraved
within the
shiny metal of
my body,
a name, a brand,
a status

why am i here?
have i forgotten You
who have placed
me here?

have i forgotten
that love is always the
reason for my
being here

in this misery
shall love continue to be
my guide and cure?

how can i ever forget
the floor of
my existence
the love without
a ceiling?

the house of love
that never falls
the beams that never
break

the Host that knows
everything
