And Must Hopefully Be The Best Of All Our Endings - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

things are not what they
seem
familiarly like the way you
have mistaken the sun
as not one of the stars because
it is nearer
to your heart

when you are told of the truth finally
you refuse to embrace it

because you have loved what it is not
because what it is not is sweeter than what it really is

and they who feel you
had so easily forgiven
this error of love
this wrong that makes us
all live
this mistake that used to be
a good beginning

and must hopefully be the best
of all our endings.
