  11997.     

the comfort and ease that we embrace in certainties

there is always comfort
in something certain
basics of life: where to go what to do
when it is finished

there is ease
knowing what a chair is all about
or the exact time when
darkness comes

but there is something more
something that we perhaps all know
there is calamity too
in being certain
in the flowing and the expulsion of the
tight hold of the bud

how can one face the sun?
when wilting is certain sooner than thought
how can one face the mirror
and count the factitious of years
the shedding of masks
the slow showing of the first bone
of the skull

  11998.     

the comfort of silence

silence is, and will always be,
comfortable, like a stone, mute to the
changes of the season, and no matter
who takes it, a child or an old man,
the stone keeps the secrets
of their wrongdoings.

the comfort of silence
to the wrongdoer, makes the stone,
the most trusted friend,
no one talks inside the hardness
even if it is broken, into shattered pieces
the stone carries the silence
it is numbed by the centuries
of human oppression.

  11999.     

THE COMFORT ZONE

when i let you go,
when i help you pack your things because you need more space
i simply want to impress upon you that i am easing your pain

my arms are not enough
the skies are bluer and the seas are wider
as always

your hands are too small
you lips have shun away the wonders of smiles

this world is a circle and it is circling even without us
it will keep revolving
even if we want to cease

the pain will always be there and i have learned
to master it
like the way i have kept control about what my arms
can do
about what my eyes can
choose what to
see and what
to imagine

you need to understand some more
and i know who can better teach you

go with the waves and let them carry you to the
navel of the earth
let the winds carry you to the
edge of your world
let there be no ill-feelings
let there be memories
let them be children who shall give you tiny voices
urging you to find
home
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12000.     

the coming company....

i thought i am the only
person in the room
there is no sound
of a bird chirping
outside there is the
gift of evening
tiny stars hanging and
the glow of city lights
far from here
i thought i was the only
one gifted with sadness
that which by time
i have learned to love
i thought life is not that
fair with me put in the
the utmost prejudice of
a soundless existence

then one day you came
a shadow cast from that
morning light
on the door that i have
never opened.
