  11589.     

That Secret Love

love is concealed upon the heart
that is buried in the muscle of my chest
fenced by bones, bound by veins
around a pool of blood

i give thanks to the Lord
for i love you and you know not
for i have sinned and they know not
for i am the only one that feels it
and hears its beat
in utter silence
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11590.     

that secret meeting...

a voice faint coming from the valleys of the heart
the whistle of the boy from beneath the barns of
youth memories surging like flowers lotus unfolding
on the ponds of solitude
the voice joins with the other voices from the desert
places of the lonely hearts
(how many? finally there are many like sands slipping from
a crevice of profanity)
a choir of singing scenes, mountains and hills under the fog
and mist, trails winding, and trees like broccoli on the
backyard of abandoned women

the sun comes out in splendor
rain showers faint like a smile of the shy maiden
a rainbow slices the spheres
between us.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11591.     

that self-confidence

i can feel it
the moment i read your lines

just don't be offended
i won't tell you

but i have always told myself
though
arrogantly

that i know, within, with this fire burning,
i can always do

much better
but i will not show that to you

i will read
and i will listen

i won't talk at all
i am full and i am still writing
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11592.     

That Sense of Going...

There is pain in the soul
it is invincible
the whole body feels it
and it is
undeniable

You know it when
you start to cease
you cannot tell it to anyone
what you tell them is the joy
of the smile
the stories of
the nice days to come

For you are afraid of the sound of the wailing of the clock
the sobbing of the bedsheets
the cries of the walls
the darkness of the heavens
the pouring of the heavy rain

You are their love
and they have become all your fears
but the hands of the clock
signal the green light of going
and so you must go
silently
you tiptoe like air beyond the threshold of the door

The next morning the pain in your soul is gone
it is taken from the strings of your body
you can see people crying but you cannot hear them
what is the use of this movie you ask yourself
there is no sound and it is boring
like an old Chaplin
and so you finally go

To a place where it is as tranquil as a bay without boats and birds
airy, and as they have promised you
perfect
beyond the arms of the words
beyond the lips of the mouth....
 
RIC S. BASTASA
