Love at some safe distance

Distances make love more vulnerable
in the sadness raised by longing
aggrandized by missing you outrageously.
It has been said, that love is greatest
when it cannot find sufficient words
and all expressions never are enough.
When love suffers from inadequacy
of expression and the proper words,
it is because it is too deep and honest
and therefore demanding too much of its owner,
who canít compromise with his own truth of honesty
or of his loveís, which must demand the absolute.
Such love is maybe better off at some safe distance
than will risk its purity, sincerity and honesty
in feelings that canít bear corruption.

Thanks for your comments.

Shockingly amazing to see something from the opposite side. Well, we always believed that distances make love stronger. But after reading your poem, it left me thinking.

Whether it was intentional or not, this reminded me of several sermons while sitting in contemplation, gleaning what I could from Biblical verse at times of great change.
There is a quiet acceptance, gentle advice and a gradual realisation of those things you secretly knew, but had to complete the journey to realise.

I enjoyed reading this poem very much and the question it poses regarding love at a safe distance. Words to ponder but without real answers. Well written.
