  11557.     

That you, by myself, be always worshiped.

I might be unfair
if i say
that God has been deaf
to all my pleas.

For last night and in the
last crucial seven days of my life
he saved me from the harms
that my self could have
inflicted upon itself: those sleepless eyes
the tumults inside the mind,
the uprising of the acids
inside my intestines
the whirling of the thoughts
the storms of the past
the tornadoes of hasty judgments
and all those sorts for which if you try looking at it from
a distance
you definitely have lost control of.

There was that Hand that keeps on guiding
and holding and caressing
even in my sleep even if i do not remember anymore
what happened.

There was that breath that was not mine anymore.
That soothing that came from without
That comfort which i do not know from where
Which i guess, i may call now as
Heaven.

Whatever i am, and wherever I'd been
This early morning, i bow before you Oh Lord

Thank you Very Much. Thy name be forever Praised.
That you, by myself, be always worshiped.

  11558.     

that's life

her only baby
dies, that's life

a man on top of his
promising singing stint
has cancer o the throat,
that's life my dear

the shallow talker
lazy bone but boss sucker
goes up in the office ladder
that too is life

an outstanding teacher
low paid cannot send his
kids to college
that's life

a carpenter without a house
a pedophile priest
a corrupt politician forming
his own dynasty
that's life

a poet without a book
a sick doctor
a nurse dying in her room
these too is what
life is all about
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11559.     

that's why i am here with you....

again this is just an outpouring
of rain
all my loneliness dropping like
rain
all my sadness dripping
like rain
again, this is nothing about
anthologies
or who gets the Poet of the Month
thing
in any community magazine

this is rain outpouring
this is a form of therapy
on everyday malady
nothing about art or musing

when tomorrow rains again
i will be here

when sunshine comes and
flowers bloom in the field
when my beloved sings and
sleeps with me in bed

why should i be here?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11560.     

Thatskinny Past

the past is skinny
it does not speak much
it goes to church
everyday

it is shy, but it thinks
much better, deeper and
probing like
a scalpel to the
gum and decaying teeth

it is what you only know
and you are surprised
how skin deep things were
until you wake up
and embrace the wonders of
change

the past is buried
it is skinny and dead
you want it
it can never be yours again

you meet a face
it is plump, and alienating
it does not recognize you
it is still hurt
and kept its composure
in indifference
