A Love Affair - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

i will not utter those words,
i will be too cunning and barbarically
dishonest,

i will be candid
all i have for you is lust

the one that likes you today
but throws you like a cigarette butt in
a minute

the point is i like to touch
every part of you and take it with me
but it will only be for a while
i know myself

i always throw something as garbage
after i have tasted a little bit of this and that

you are the sun now
and i am the worshiper
you are too near
and i will be burned but i will touch you just the same

i know myself
and i know my limits

i am a wall myself
impenetrable by your unintentional
seduction

i ride with time with you
and i have feasted in you even without looking
i know myself
i have my own selfish ways

i eat you and i have swallowed
every piece of you
and you do not know it

now you are a part of my body
and all my organs are shouting
victorious

you dissolve in me
i am a wide and winding river
duodenal

but it will only be for a very short time
i am always quick to discard you

and no one
no one really
knows.
