Sssssssssh, Please Do Not Talk About It - Poem by RIC BASTASA

be silent now, do not ever mention my name
the connotations of my name
the one i talk about me about you
and us,
the rumors are always sweet
and you like them and you cannot hold yourself
from spreading them
to everyone who knows the power of my name
its magic spell
its sweetness like a coconut dessert
with you now
my name shall have its stains and i will be in ruin

sssssssssssshhh, stop
do not talk about my name now,
the rumors may be sweet to the ears of my enemies
and false friends
they will have the dose now, of their own medicines,
thinking that i am down, depressed, or even dead
to the last detail of my own perdition,

i will rise to save myself and tell them all
that the rumors are not true,

i will show them a happy face and some dancing steps
some pictures of my big smile

no, they will not believe me
they will believe you, as expected, i have anticipated all these

today, i will die
