  13597.     

the vanishing years....

there is actually
nothing repeated after the segregation
after one's body is pulled
and all the roots are taken

someone disappears
and everyone that loves it keeps looking
in all places
asking all the questions possible that may lead
to an answer

but nothing repeats itself to make a trace
and leads you to a finding

at one final moment
one must accept the reality of a disappearance
a banishment
from the hell that other have inflicted upon each
one that we long and loved
and we sit upon this longing in so much
silence

remembering
and always remembering the smiles of every vanishing face
their touches
and embraces
until all the pain of separation is gone
until what we have
is ourselves
lucky enough to be still in the room
dining with the rest
and conversing what we used to speak about
because
we have finally forgotten

  13598.     

the vase

the vase where
your flower is put
is filled with
mosquitoes

do you still want to
put it there?

in this lousy metaphor
my body is the vase.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  13599.     

The veil that covered her face

That veil was the first symbolism
Of her lies, it covered
The truth of her origin,

Her face underneath, you never really
Saw the truth of her eyes,

You were blinded by the cloth
You were tempted by the part that was still covered,

When the veil was lifted
It was then that you saw, the truth, of what was felt,

You wanted to back out,
And stop the ceremony of a commitment

But there were lots of people in the church
Ready to clap their hands, after the much awaited kiss

You kissed her, and the people clapped in
Jubilation of your beginnings

You did not really mean it,
But it was too late; you have already sealed the contract

With that kiss and all the people in the church clapped their hands
The rest in your life to come shall be without the participation
Of your senses.

  13600.     

the vengeance of the earth....

the earth is unfeeling
as man ravaged its forests
and poisons its seas and rivers
the earth does not say anything

it simply welcomes every destruction
for a time
and then it comes with its vast vengeance
take care.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
