  11585.     

Remorse

the past has wrongs
buried by the sands
of time
and here you are
the wave
restless anew
rolling like a mat
trying to wake
them all up
asking
for their names

what for? i ask.
for nothing, you say.

  11586.     

Remote And Unconnected, But You Can Assemble Them Yourself

i must have said it before
and here you are telling me that
someone said it,
sort of pretending that it wasn't me

the church that you destroyed
and built again

i missed the old facade
where God must have been there waiting

you changed the lights
paved the way and made it too smooth for me

what i see is a cheap structure
to my utter dismay

but you are too good to be tackled
too kind to be toppled down

and so i healed the rift with a laughter
that you can never hear

there is still the guilt that lives at the bottom of things
but soon i will dislodge it

it does not deserve my dwelling
which is always waiting for something else for something new

the old clothes are burned
old needles shall use new threads to sew another pattern again

  11587.     

Removing The Denial

at that time
before love was professed
there was already a hint
of the hands
which closed and took the form
of a fist
and the eyes which looked away
from the intended
focus of the
imagined bonding or that wish
for a
more serious togetherness that
promise
of forever i shall be with you
that time shall bless us
when we become one
but no
the eyes of reality are awake
there is no such love
no such state
but only an illusion of you loving
me and i was too stupid to
believe that i have wings to fly
that i have this lightness
to reside on the clouds

i stopped looking
i breathed deeply summoning all the powers
of the wind inside my lungs
and i took all the courage to tell you
this is not right
and we must quit

and there there was this certain
quite that i have learned
slowly to spell
correctly

i remove boldly with my bare feet
that filth of denial.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11588.     

Renewed Self After Being Broken By Love's Illusion

you are not my reason anymore
for my arguments

i am my own reason
i chart my own matrices

i situate myself and
then claim my freedom

it is not easy to be weak
it is too inhuman for me to surrender

who are you? a tumor to my brain
a clot to my blood

a clog to my vein
i shall remove you from my system


i have more maps to draw
more places to hide

i am not afraid even if you hold me
i am hard as a nail i am slimy as my ulcer.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
