  7597.     

i want to be us

i have nothing to conceal
for i have none of those fortunes
in fact i tell all
what i know and what
the world wants to hear
sort of
a storyteller
pleasing the sad ones
listening
to the voices of crowded
minds
for i am the guard of the
mall
standing, looking closely
to any form
of calamity

please do not run away from me
someone
so friendly need not be hurt
and feel
what abandon is

i am myself
because there is nothing more
because there is no one
except
my vision of us....

  7598.     

I want to fly!

yes, you do.
where do you want to go?
i am looking for a new home

how does one grow wings?
i want to fly...

it is the most quiet conversation.
the man begs to understand
why the mouth he is blest with does not take the shape of a beak.

the bird sings of many lands
the man has not yet been to

the little brown bird's heart is a ray of sun
but the man does not know


inside the wars are all in the making
outside it is still calm

the bird and the man kiss
the bird flies
the man falls asleep
the man flies
the bird is dead.

  7599.     

i want to go over there

i want to go over there
i now have the courage
of hercules
i now have the wisdom
of prometheus

i want to cross this river
take me
on this sail
silently, gently, gracefully
take me
to the other side

where there is no pain
anymore
where the songs of praise
are sung

i want to go over there
now and
forever
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7600.     

i want you to go, please go

please go now

it is dark and you need sleep

you are tired, you are disturbed, and i do not want to be the reason

for your disturbed feelings

leave me alone

i always have to suffer alone

it is my season of pain, it my turn to be miserable

i will be alone in this and you cannot be of help

no one can

it is me finally caught in my own world of loneliness

the world that i write about so many times described in all

my poems

please go now, i do not want to see a beautiful person like you crying

let there be no tears

and sobs

a gentleman like me still has dignity

let me have the honor, the opportunity to go in peace

to the world that i can no longer write and talk about

because it will be indescribable

because there i am no longer myself

but another being

perhaps with wings and with feelings which are so light

like floating and drifting clouds.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
