A Poet’s Romance

You are far and yet so near,
Disappointing at times but still my dear.
True! Your smile is not merely a pretension,
Without much creativity
I wish I could hold your attention!

Let me borrow your dryness
For your heart could sing and the soul dance,
Enough of remorse and dissolution,
It’s time to celebrate the poet’s romance!
