Best Poem of RIC S. BASTASA

' The Last Dance Of Your Life '

i



you don't really have to mind
death
what power do you have for it

when it comes
it comes
none can prevent it
from sitting beside you

the doctors are honest
and sometimes
too stupid to give you a promise
for another extension of
life

a hope that poisons the mind instead
and makes
our recent stand rigid and
unreasonable

for those who have seen the light
on one hand
sees death as
a welcome experience
in fact a festivity
another coming experience
another full moon
at the bay

another ...

Read the full of ' The Last Dance Of Your Life '

...By You Alone....

THERE is this longing
(well-defined like a completed
portrait of
the beloved, the only one
loved and desired)

there is this love unrequited
like hands opening to space waiting
for another hand to hold it
