The Ending Silence Of Departure - Poem by RIC BASTASA

when the house breaks
like a porcelain plate

tiny pieces can hurt
the hands and feet

i know the reason of my birth
i will be the one to pick
the broken pieces

days and nights my fingers
busy on the piecing
tears are glue and
sobriety is the faithful
house help

the ruins stand back
the house takes a ball of light
on top of the

a lighthouse summoning ships
to take the safe path
collisions are avoidance
and parting becomes new meetings

a hug is the cure for all these
lonely stories, the ending is
the silence of departing.
