When We Hide In The Open - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

i hide in the open
you see my body, but you will never see
what is in my mind,
we speak, i tell you what you want to hear
and the world is perfectly at peace,

what is fought is what is inside
the monsters are there
the unknown furies are in the heart
what we cannot understand and what we cannot name
reside there and
have become inseparable

or that they have become us, and we are threatened
we tease them with sleep
and we assure that sooner we shall forget and be happy again

they face us and tell us
we have been there even before you think
every before you walk
we live in your genetic codes
and you cannot escape because we are embedded

so i keep on hiding in the open
that is where the grasses and the trees live
where stars group at night
where the moon floats on that silvery water

i hide with you, and we hold hands and we kiss and we make love
and in those deep moments
we see the face of God.
