A Fixation - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

between two islands
of my life
i set upon a swim
this middle portion
of clear calm waters

it is not deep
no storms not even a wave
it is crystal clear
and beneath
a white sandy floor

some fish lick my legs
and tickle my pelvis
some sea grass massage
the soles of my feet

and so i like it here
and i am not going somewhere
or anywhere

the other island
which they call eternal bliss
for a while
can wait

it is between day and night
it is between heaven and earth
it is between life and death
it is what you call
my sinfulness.

in here i am very happy
and that is all enough for me

the sky blue waters are so cool
& the surroundings simply beautiful
