Ramblings And More Ramblings

i like talking to myself, and so i just keep on talking
about anything else
no one hears it of course except myself
and like this sentence construction there is no period
not even a comma for this is a kind of talk that does not want to end

only when you are around and you talk endlessly too when i begin to listen.
and attentively i give everything to you
you fill me with words and words and the conversations keep going

i like to think that i am making a poem for you silently in my mind.
but it is not

i am more of going inward lost in my thoughts unable to find where is the way
out of this journey

  11634.     

Ramblings At 11 A.M.

what humiliates us is us.
it is the thought that we are humiliated that
humiliates us, not them, who
are but perspectives, minds that we have no
power to fathom, eyes that look where they want to,
it is a matter of decision actually
to be humiliated or not

in the same manner what give us dignity is us.
what we think is what we are
and we are dignified for as long as we think ourselves to be
the manifestations matter, we agree, but these are perspectives
still that matter not to them
who are preoccupied with the art of living
and the eventual and slow
deaths that everyday enters upon us.

everything are mental constructs
to keep our pieces intact we grope and always collect
and think that we are whole again and again
like a chant, a whisper
winding to our ears

do not be too sensitive
no one can kill

  11635.     

Ramona

laughs so hard
that even sorrow smiles at her

fights so strong that even
fate accepts its defeat

loves so true that even hatred
walks out of the way

and lives life so well
that even death still loves
to see her exist...

she is safe now
i hope.

  11636.     

Ramona Remembered

you finally cracked when the teacher said,
life is unfair
you cannot accept that fact that sticks in your skin
like a tattoo since birth perhaps even till death

the unfairness of it all was the shutting of your light
for Ramona
like the sun you could have shone like a very bright day
in the middle of this darkness

now, the teacher comes to class with nothing but a piece of chalk
and convinced he writes there on that blackboard

indeed, life is unfair. He packs his things and leave for the mountain
and since then

no one hears about him again.

i am staying in this university and will continue writing all about these.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
