182. Aloof

Your aloofness does not bother me -
I am not hurt by anyone's detachment
which on the contrary increases my respect,
detachment being always sane and healthy
and the more, the deeper feelings are involved;
and I, if anyone, am well aware of depths of feelings
and the storms that rage under the surface
hidden well under the invisible cloak
not of a mask but from necessity
in order not to let them die but live forever.
If you give them out for mortals to manhandle,
then there will be hurts and undesired end to them,
but flowers are best cultivated in protection.
It's a simple question of survival,
and I will support it, never risk it,
live and cultivate my love
and never interfere with others doing likewise.
