A Broken Heart.❣ by Rumi.

A Broken Heart.❣

I said I shall tell
the tale of my heart
as best as I can;
Caught
in the storm of my tears,
with a bleeding heart,
I failed to do that!

I tried to relate to event
in broken, muted words;
The cup of my thoughts
was so fragile,
that I fell into pieces
like shattered glass.

Many ships were wrecked
in this storm;
What is my little helpless boat
in comparison?
The waves destroyed my ship,
neither good remained nor bad;
Free from myself,
I tied my body to a raft.

Now, I am neither up nor down –
no this is not a fair description;
I am up on a wave one instant,
and down under another the next.
I am not aware of my existence,
I know only this:
When I am, I am not,
and when I am not, I am!
