You Are Looking For Me I Heard But You Are Finding Me In The Wrong Places - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

it is sad
but let there be no tears

you are looking for me
i heard
but you are finding me in the wrong places

you think that i am but a body
and so you look for me with your hands
as a body has
arms and as hands look for their arms

i am not what you think i am
the premises have all been wrong
i am not a place that you can find
i am not a date that you can remember
i am not even a why that you can reason out
correctly and then
if you think that you can find the one that is reasonable
and logical then
you can declare that you have found me

but i am not logic, i am not a number, i am not
a reason

if you say that finally you are uncertain
then you have become so beautiful to me

more likely i am.
for i have never agreed on something so certain

it deceives. And i am not a deceiver.
let me be the most beautiful uncertainty in your life
and if you love me
be uncertain about us

and that is where we meet.
