When I Am Down And Feeling Lonely - Poem by RIC BASTASA

i dress up for the day
and prepare myself for a walk
and leave a message on the table
for you to read

there is nothing between those
simple lines

I have to carry them with me
I always manage to carry the unseen weight
As i do not have to add
What i have to yours

I walk at the boulevard
Like anyone else
Taking more air, exhaling what is
Not necessary

It is simple as that
There is no need for more complications

When i return home
You are there waiting for me
We kiss

And as usual
Nothing happens
Because we keep our own lonely matters
Responsibly
On those strong cabinets of our
Maturity.
