“My heart will never seek another heart,
Or smell another flower, knowing you.
Your love has made heart’s field a desert waste;
No love other than yours grows in that place. “
“Words of wisdom
came to me at last
“the beloved you’ve lost
the one you’ve been seeking outside
can only be found inside”
Escape from the black cloud that surrounds you
Then you will see your own light
As radiant as the full moon.”
“The agony of Lovers
burns with the fire of passion.
Lovers leave traces of where they’ve been.
The wailing of broken hearts
is the doorway to God.”
“Anyone who genuinely and constantly with both hands
looks for something, will find it.
Though you are lame and bent over, keep moving
toward the Friend. With speech, with silence,
with sniffling about, stay on the track.
Whenever some kindness comes to you, turn
that way, toward the source of kindness.”
