  8397.     

I Bait With My Heart

'When you fish for love, bait with your heart, not your brain.'
Mark Twain (1835-1910)

since i shall fish
for love,
so i have love
as bait
not my brain
which has given
me more pain
than pleasure
the thoughts
that shy away
from the true meaning
of love
looking into the dictionary
of words
rather than deeds
because precisely
God has invented the
hug
so we may learn to
love sans
the uselessness of
words.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  8398.     

I Beg You My Friend To Draw Her Back To Me

If a friend
true to her
Is you
Is there any way
Hidden from me
A gaze
perhaps
That you can do
To draw her back
To me?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  8399.     

I Begin Again

and so i begin again
from the cold winds of my desert nights
where there is no moon where there are no stars in the skies
i rest on the sands and lay my head there
waiting for tomorrow

tonight i must again think of you
the face that makes my blood move like running water
on dried river beds
on emptied wells
on fields cracked by too much dryness

tonight i recall again
the first kiss from your innocent lips
your soft hands holding my body
your words of love comforting me to always move on
and always be strong and confident

deep in this lonely night
i close my eyes
i enter another world before tomorrow comes
this world of dreams
where we kiss and make love again for
another beginning

it is dark and so silent and then the desert begins to sing
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  8400.     

I Believe

i believe that in the novel
written about us
it shall not end on the last
sentence with a period

i ask the Great Writer
to at least end it with a comma

the silence of the comma
the suspense of the comma

and the exclamation point
of the Hallelujah!

I do not prefer the eternal rest
i pray for that Bliss.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
