Mysterious Lover

Featured Image

She is jealous when I only stare at the other woman,
Her lovely crimson lips tremble, dark fire blazes in the black eyes,

Every night, I manipulate her on the stage, I let her play the drama of tragic love,
She impresses the audience as the passionate woman who gives all to love,

She is the gorgeous doll of the traditional puppet-show of Japan,
I am a young puppeteer owning her, and I am her prisoner at the same time,

When I talk with a pretty girl intimately, this doll looks very sad,
When I go out to night pleasure and came home, she shows the cold profile like ice,
My old master says laughingly that the doll which a soul entered fascinates all,

Tonight, I caught bad cold, of course did my best on the stage,
she whispered secretly like a gentle mother to me backstage,
“You tried hard, you are excellent, you are my splendid partner,”

After all, she knows my mind more than anyone else in the real world,
It is a fantasy or delusion, but it may be my destiny to master a way of the art with her,

Her clothes were made from the beautiful antique kimonos which unhappy ladies wore,
She teaches me eternal sorrow and passion of women living for love,

She can trouble me, however, she gives me joy and spirit,
I stare at her and she smiles radiantly like a immortal goddess,
She is my graceful mysterious lover.

    This is a striking piece of writing. Imprisonment, control, manipulation – who is doing what to whom. Love the ambiguities, and all within the spotlight of a puppet show.
