Rumi

Standard

My heart is on fire
In my madness
I roam the desert

The flames of my passion
devour the wind and the sky

My cries of longing
My wails of sorrow
Are tormenting my soul

You wait patiently
Looking into my intoxicated eyes
You accept my passion
with the serenity of Love

You are the Master of Existence
One day I shall be a Lover like You.

You amuse me with your touch
although I can’t see your hands.

You have kissed me with tenderness
although I haven’t seen your lips
You are hidden from me.

But it is you who keeps me alive
Perhaps the time will come
when you will tire of kisses

I shall be happy
even for insults from you
I only ask that you
keep some attention on me.

Come to this street with
only your sweet fragrance.

Don’t walk into this river
wearing a robe!

Paths go from here to there,
but don’t arrive from somewhere !

It’s time now
to live naked.

The way of love is not a subtle argument.
The door there is devastation.
Birds make great sky-circles of their freedom.
How do they learn it?
They fall, and falling, they’re given wings

Dancing is not just getting up painlessly,
like a leaf blown on the wind;
dancing is when you tear your heart out
and rise out of your body to hang
suspended between the worlds.

Come back my love.
My broken heart
cannot bear more passion,
no more promises.

I’ve had enough
of sleepless nights,
of my unspoken grief,
of my tired wisdom.

Come my treasure,
my breath of life.
Come and dress my wounds
and be my cure.

Enough of words.
Come to me without a sound.

We are a singing joy,

Two in form two in figure,

two to the outward eye

We’re one in one,

you and I.
