  3197.     

a safe secret...

dear dead woman,

my eyes ache badly
today
but i must write
you this letter

i still have so many
things to tell you

and i could have told
you everything
when you were still alive

the moon is full tonight
and the wind is colder

i cannot rest and
i cannot sleep

i have many secrets to tell
you
and these are all safe now
since you are
dead.

your friend,
(name withheld)

p.s.
i still like to live.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  3198.     

a saying

and there was darkness
and let there be light?

he wept.

  3199.     

a saying....

to be somebody
he says
you must last, do not just fleet,
and fret and
when things get rough and
thorny
just hang in there
like a vine
on the iron grills
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  3200.     

A Scalpel

A scalpel am I to cynthia’s
Aching tooth
And true to your calling
You are the morphin
To my antiquated pain

All I need really is a simple
Bamboo
Toothpick

Get some sleep prince charming
Now free yourself

Just be an ordinary man
To an ordinary woman

Hold on to your promise
To love her till the end

For better or for worse, for richer for poorer.
In sickness and in health
Till death do you part

Remind her though
Not to outdo your promise to love each other

You may find it too humiliating for yourself
And you simply
Retreat to yourself like a deflated balloon

But just in case
Love stops, ceases, and becomes frank and true

Say: I don’t love you anymore

Take the yellow brick road

And dance yourself to freedom.

You’re too courageous, It does not matter who gets hurt.

It could be you. It could just be you.

Jaundiced man, jaundiced heart.

Every woman you love wishes you a happy

Death.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
