  8397.     

love's pains

when love looks at you
you move out
show your back
and make a smack

at me
i, who clings to
a love
unrequited

you who loves
another
is a tongue-in-cheek

you who
finds all these
irrelevant

i, who is full
finally finds
an empty bag

when you left
i kiss the air
that still carries your
smell

you who does not
love me
has the laughter

i, who love you
rains the tears.

you have the sun
i have its other side
the darkness of
a loveless night

  8398.     

love's triumph in isolation

joy faces me
two hands hold my
hand calloused
by sorrow

the past fades
your fingers
entwine with
my fingers

as we walk
to a distance
no word comes
to say to sing

there are trees
and palms and roses
there is a bright day
ahead of us

such a beautiful world
we affirm

love can triumph
in isolation
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  8399.     

loving a widower

your way of loving a widower
is a way of saving your life

not that it is this kind of long
distance love with nothing
to use but
just a voice in your wilderness
and some sweet talk
for at least once a week
or twice a month

but this can make what you have
in suspense
another four years to wait till
his youngest daughter graduates
in college

you wait
you like the drag of a promise
the years pass by
and then you look yourself at the mirror
the wrinkles tease you
you have been deceived
and now you find the chance
of saying no
time passed and you say
i had enough of waiting
now i can have my own life
within my hands
and i will shape it the way i like

and then you are alone again
but happier this time
deep inside you
it is what you actually wanted
and you have chosen it

like it is your destiny
you say you want it and
then finally declare
you don't want any

like you throw a stone to the sea
to make the ripples
but what you wanted to see
are ripples disappearing one by one
and the stone finally sinking
deep down under
until it is gone and you sit and stare
and heave a sigh

finally you leave a smile to the setting sun
and then take your way back home

i guess no one is still waiting
you take the key from your purse and then open your door

  8400.     

loving beyond love to a happy ending

there is something else
more than love
or lust

there is something else
going on outside us
no one can ever know
because they only see us

never had they lived with us
so we begin to fall in love
it is not like the ordinary opening of beers
or stirring of milk
or the seeping of tea together
on Saturday afternoons

i believe there is something much
nobler than these
that we must recognize
i believe that when you sleep beside me


she does not really care what is going on outside her
her body is as warm as mine
we trust, and that could be a happy ending.
