mythical lover by Rumi

My love for you
has driven me insane

I wander aimlessly
the ruins of my life
my old self a stranger to me

Because of your love
I have broken with my past

My longing for you
keeps me
in this moment

My passion
gives me courage

I look for you
in my innermost being

I used to read
the myths of love

Now I have become
the mythical lover….

Every drop of blood I spill

I am a sculptor, a molder of form.
In every moment I shape an idol

But then, in front of you, I melt them down
I can rouse a hundred forms,

and fill them with spirit,

but when I look into your face,
I want to throw them in the fire.

My souls spills into yours and is blended.

Because my soul has absorbed your fragrance,
I cherish it.
Every drop of blood I spill
informs the earth,

I merge with my Beloved
when I participate in love.

In this house of mud and water,
my heart has fallen to ruins.

Enter this house, my Love, or let me leave.

~Rumi,(Divan of Shems of Tabriz)
