A Very Controversial Poem

I would like to share a poem I made years ago. I consider this to be very controversial because it spawned into a lot of conflict within my married life. No, you got it all wrong! There was no third party or what. I mean, hello?! I haven’t and will not engage in that chaotic situation. I only want to live a simple but romantic life (LOL).

Anyway, my other half misunderstood it and that’s when it started. I’m sure you’re already intrigued about the poem, right? So here it is:

So near, yet so far, so close, yet so distant

Wanting to touch you, feel you and kiss you,

Longing to hold you, but still, dear, I can’t

Say those undying but sweet “I Love You“.

Tried keeping you even only in dreams

There, you may acknowledge my existence

Take and treasure me like those precious gems;

And everything will only then make sense.
No need to be conscious or even brazen

Eventhough a little bit frustrating

But it’s only then that I’m well taken;

For all that I need is just daydreaming.
Loving you from afar is what I chose

For in that way, rejection has no chance

Being distant is the way to be close

Coz’ it’s safe to love you from a distance.
Only through this, I have enough courage

Of expressing my deepest hidden thoughts

My passion for you, my love and my rage;

Oh, please tell me, does this have to be fought?
Please tell me, is this worth the conflict?
