RIC S. BASTASA


You on top of me.


Despite my
varied escapades

despite the numbers
in my mind

the nights and
dawns

the drinks and
the see through glasses

the mirrors and
shadows

i keep telling myself
i have so many things
to do

but to forget you
and not miss you

is still not possible
i need time

more time more
time

to make you
fade

what a night
on such a short hour

i never regret
though that once

i had you
on top of me.

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
