Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


Up There, Up There


we feign happiness
sometimes because we long
for that moment when we
were sad and yet
so fulfilled,

we made enemies and then
we befriend them again
because we cannot stand
the pains of being alone

we have mood swings
leaving and comings soon
become more like each other

and soon love and hate do not
make any difference
loneliness and sadness all in
one face of a woman
that we sleep with every night

it is a circle and we do not
know where to end and begin
we search for pleasure and
catch each moan with another moan
but at what level of satisfaction?

repeated, always repeated and
what do you feel? it is this numbness
not happiness, not sadness
not hate not love not hope not despair

up there, up there perhaps,
the mind begins to scream

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
