I Wish Upon A Star - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

tonight
i am not that really lonely
as you think
i am
or as i used to be
one
always looking for the stars
the Phoenix
and the Suffix

but tonight
and for so many nights
when you were not with me
i have learned
a lot of lessons from the roof

like the star
i am distant
i am shining
i am indifferent

like the star
i am not a guide for someone's fate
i am a lie
a sophistry of the universe

like a star
i glisten not borrowing any light
from the sun or the moon

like a star i may be alone
but look at me carefully if by chance you are in the desert with
somebody

i am still lovely
i do not rain and i keep the silence of such
beauty
