  7197.     

if you hurt me

if you hurt me
i will not complain
that is too
common neither will
i retaliate
that is too human
neither will i make
a scheme for
your eventual destruction
that is too
rude, or crude art
of survival

something divine
sparks within our
hearts

no vengeance
plain understanding
why one
wants to hurt and why
one must not
exact vengeance
or demand
justice anymore

God knows best.
This is cliche. And i
am taking it.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7198.     

if you look for a rhyme, so sorry i don't have it

i don't jam and i don't rhyme
my life does not rhyme
and some parts simply
do not fit
until now
like a dovetail
of wooden pieces
to make
your chair

so sorry but i don't have
rhyme

it is the truth
it is the truth of this world

some things do not fit
some people do not just fit

square pegs in a round hole
square lives in a round dimension

it is the truth of this world
fingers in the hands
toes in your feet
look at them as a family of your
unique body

i like to rhyme i like to jibe with you
and sing the harmony of
our song

the truth is
there isn't

and so my dear, let us look at each other's eyes
again

can you do it without blinking?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7199.     

if you look for meaning of a poem

if you look for the meaning of a poem
be disappointed
its meaning
is in the feeling

the feel of
a lightness like a cloud
(were you ever once a cloud?)
the feel of a feather
landing on your palms
and you do not
even
know it has
touched
you

be glad
a poem is
nothing
but
feelings

it has no
mind

you cannot
measure
its weight
and width
but it is so
huge
and
encompassing

it is there
it has arrived
occupying
the whole you
and you
never knew
that
for once it
ever happened.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7200.     

if you love and really love

always be ready
with a tray of
forgiveness

like fresh fruits
and flowers on the tray
of hope
serve forgiveness
heartily

and then be happy again
dining on the table
of love

by the window the
sun is always ready with
the rays of
more blessings
 
RIC S. BASTASA
