Imaginary Lovers - Poem by Mihaela Pirjol

Imaginary keys,
wishing to open doors
of imaginary houses:
suspended on trembling hands...
contracts already made,
and contracts desiring to be made;
weighed with an unsuitable scale:
balancing heavy
romantic love.

Rental contracts,
wishing to open doors
to furtive passions,
and exploding behind
carefully locked doors:
as prisoners, escaping
chains and cells:
to freedom of the heart,
unconstrained by regulations.

Exasperate oscillation:
between mind and heart...
and a lacerating jealousy!
between being alive,
and pretending a life:
between "I love you"
felt, yet unuttered;
and "I love you"
uttered, but unfelt.
