  9597.     

Lungs Always Feeling Empty Still

to write is to breathe

exhale, inhale, exhale,
inhale,

lungs always feeling
empty still
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9598.     

Lurking In The Corner

lurking in the corner
can be as devastating
as being so alone
in a very dark room

a self-inflicted sickness
a choice
a coffin that one makes
measured to the size
of his own body

the hand must know
how to open the door
and the eyes must learn
the innate beauty of its sight
as the heart
must sing even in the middle
of an overwhelming sorrow

petrification of a soul
devastation of the mind
the rotting of a very young body
why should it be so voluntary?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9599.     

Lurking Lights

the lights lurk
and find their ways to the
bamboo slats

they paint the curve
of your body
naked on the floor

who took that warmth
away like
a diffusion of
sweetness

sugar dissolving in a
basin of water
now indistinguishable

i believe in you
but i must leave you know

we are bodies apart now
except the bridges of our breaths
the imaginary ropes of
memories
binding us
like fools.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9600.     

Lust

my lust is so intense
hot as cinder and solid as steel
and immeasurable
(not the 13 inches in your mind)

love it
but it is only momentary

it does not have the character
that stays

it soon leaves you
for it is not a memory

my lust does not last
it is rust.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
