❝ A lover knows only humility. He has no choice.
He steals into your alley at night. He has no choice.
He longs to kiss every lock of your hair. Don’t fret, he has no choice.
In his frenzied love for you, he longs to break the chains
of his imprisonment. He has no choice.
   A lover asked his beloved:
Do you love yourself more than you love me?
Beloved replied: I have died to myself and I live for you.
I’ve disappeared from myself and my attributes,
I am present only, for you.
I’ve forgotten all my learnings,
but from knowing you, I’ve become a scholar.
I’ve lost all my strength, but from your power, I am able.
   I love myself…I love you.
   I love you…I love myself.
I am your lover, come to my side,
I will open the gate to your love.
Come to settle with me. Let us be neighbors to the stars.
You’ve been hiding so long, endlessly drifting in the sea of my love.
Even so, you have always been connected to me.
Concealed, revealed, in the unknown, in the un-manifest.
I am life itself.
   You have been a prisoner of a little pond,
I am the ocean and its turbulent flood.
Come to merge with me.
Leave this world of ignorance.
Be with me, I will open the gate to your love.
   I desire you more than food or drink,
my body, my senses, my mind hunger for your taste.
I can sense your presence in my heart although you belong
to all the world. I wait with silent passïon for
one gesture, one glance from you… ❞
