The Ruse


The Ruse: A Poem


The two live far apart,
but see one another, daily,
accidentally, mostly.
.
Erotic passion grows,
It’s real, and burning,
The ruse of reactions cross great distance.
.
Like dry leaves before the fire of gaze,
Space, time, and gaps wither,
Life barriers are annihilated by the power of emotions.
.
The thoughts, the eyes, and the glory,
Unimaginable consecration,
a ruse, in full operation.
.
Love one another, either real or spurious,
The faces, the sunsets, no more vital,
The distance, by itself, was sufficient.


Haiku: Ghost

Standing next to bed,
is a ghost who is so sad,
I pretend he’s Dad.
.
The ghost of my past,
follows me like my shadow,
I shall embrace it.

  2. Great offerings. The 1st poem is sensuously appealing. Yearnings for endearment shown. The Haiku is deep in meaning!Love them!

  20. I love the ghost of your past set of verses. Best to pretend it's Dad who misses you.

    The first one is nice too. It makes a person pay attention.
    The distance fades but in the end it was sufficient to kill a romance. Is that the read I should have?

  21. Wonderful poem. Nothing matters but distance.

    Haikus are deep.

    Thanks.

  22. Yes, do embrace it, but it takes a lot of courage, patience, and willingness to embrace the ghost of your past. Whatever happens, make sure you learn the lessons you'll find along the way and find a way somehow to enjoy the "journey". Lovely haiku, and thank you for visiting mine earlier too :)

  23. great haiku! there's no running away from the past, isn't it? :)

  24. Good job on both the poem and the haiku. In your poem, I imagined two lovers on a long distance relationship. I could feel the intense passion and emotion these two lovers feel in your poem. Well penned.

    The haiku is well penned, too. And yes, there's wisdom in the second stanza. Nicely done! :)

  25. i love the distant connection...

  26. I've been through the long distance relationship rigmarole so I can identify with the first poem. Are these feelings just a ruse, indeed? And will they be the same when we finally get to touch one another. Nice write. Thanks for sharing!
