eternalmists: (bleed into me)

I am eternally, devastatingly romantic, and I thought people would see it because “romantic” doesn’t mean “sugary”. It’s dark and tormented - the furor of passion, the despair of an idealism that you can’t attain.

I'd like to share some beautiful poetry that I've
been reading, by Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi.

how very close

is your soul with mine

i know for sure

everything you think

goes through my mind

 

i am with you

now and doomsday

not like a host

caring for you

at a feast alone

 

with you i am happy

all the times

the time i offer my life

or the time

you gift me your love

 

offering my life

is a profitable venture

each life i give

you pay in turn

a hundred lives again

 

in this house

there are a thousand

dead and still souls

making you stay

as this will be yours

 

a handful of earth

cries aloud

i used to be hair or

i used to be bones

 

and just the moment

when you are all confused

leaps forth a voice

hold me close

i'm love and

i'm always yours

(ghazal number 1515, translated by Nader Khalili)

may you be overcome in mythic proportions.

may the waves always rise & crash to the rhythm of your heart.



may your life explode .



may we all
