To Show Love, He Keeps A Distance - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

after all the devotion
you seem so far
so far that it makes me
wonder whether
you are really there

now i know
the distance you throw
is for me fill up
to reflect on myself
each thought and act

that this distance
is woven for us
to be close

that you do not want
me to lose sight of myself

the distance keeps us
so close - closer than
there is no distance

a path where
i could run to you
without the echo of guilt
about my love - for you
