  12797.     

THE MIND

all these are in the mind.
Without the mind, what can i be?
or You be?

Tonight, i shall sleep alone.
I enter in my mind and embrace happiness there.

It is free. IT is delightful.
Just me without any complication at all.

The mind.
It is all in there.

Why should i waste my time with you?
I am fed up.
You don't make any sense at all.

You are a tapestry
Unfinished with my hands.

You are the sun
Yet i am no longer within your galaxy.

Out of orbit
I QUIT.

  12798.     

the mind always returns home...

the mind as usual is at its selfish tour
it says after a hard day's work it deserves to be pampered by such experience
it goes to places where it has never been
and meets what in reality should not have been
it wears the uninhibited wings and arrives on such prohibited portions
hopping and hoping to find what it thinks it must find

upon arriving there it looks around and finds desire
mostly lust to be blunt about it
the one that it cannot hold when time is sane and sober
when it is at the embrace of logic and reason

it loses itself in some dark nooks
and meets the characters of this fiction
the dances begin
the drunkenness is bottle by bottle
and the unimaginable wildness is from one forest tree to another

then a hand with the faces of some shadows tries to pull his body
and signals where and how insanity must be
fulfilled somehow

at that moment
he stands still and remembers
yet not removing the masks and fingers
he ponders
that this cannot be
that this has gone beyond what it can take within
lest there will be bursting and
later on the scattering and the eventual dying
of the spirit

there are things which are too beautiful and yet cannot be touched
&
so

he backs out and flies away

coming home the mirror sees and does not say anything
but the welcome gestures are clear

the house opens its arms
the windows greet him about a beautiful bright day

the self who is king and sane is now in
breakfast is ready and
the morning news on TV is on display

there is no murder
and there is nothing about slander.

  12799.     

THE MIND THAT IS INSIDE YOUR SKULL

it is small
your stomach i am sure
is bigger
unlike your feet
it does not travel
unlike your eyes
it does not close
it is there
even in your dreams
your imagination
travels like the wind
to lands unknown
when you are hurt
the mind finds shelter in reason
unlike the heart
that weeps until all the tears
run dry
the mind is here but its essence
is out there groping in the dark
dancing with the winds
of change
sunbathing like you
wanting also
a little
tan.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12800.     

the mind...

travels and travels
some more
non-stopping at
junctions
disregarding
the intersections and
intertwines
even if you say
that all those forty years
are faithful to your
side
the mind knows no
bounds
except the limits sets
by our own
hands
we should have let it
go and even be
gone without any
regrets at all
because it is its
nature
it is beyond our body
our hold
we should have
set it like our souls
ephemeral
infinite
always grasping for
what we have not
met
what we have not
tasted
that which shocks us
for a while
and yet
rightfully ours.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
