And Then You'Re Gone - Poem by RIC BASTASA

listening to my monologues
is never fun
in fact i think you are irritated
by what i do not wish to say
that is why
you never really pay attention to the
words that shimmer like ripples
on the water
without fish or snail.

but i know the consequences
i have been warned
by extreme loneliness when
i was abandoned
and so it is better this way
you leave without notice
and my words
have become full and yet
i am so

go away find someone
who shall love you
much better than i can

i choose to stay and shall learn to wait again
for nothing.
