Angst - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

enrico poses with a beautiful wife
and two kids as Kayang also sends a
photograph of
a family

they were old flames taking separate roads
on their new lives

it was really unexpected but in life
the unexpected always asserts itself

the next thing i know is another
angst

someone dies and someone grieves
secretly
for fear that the grief may hurt someone
that you
pretend loving

pretense is another fact of life
a stranger that stays which keeps everyone in the house
tiptoeing

an open door does not necessarily welcome you
someone wants to close it
but couldn't
