Rumi – Love. The Joy that Wounds

You are the drop, and the ocean.
You are kindness, you are anger,
You are sweetness, you are poison.
Do not make me more disheartened.

You are the chamber of the Sun,
You are the abode of Venus,
You are the garden of all hope.
Oh, Beloved, let me enter.

In it incredible how this poem by Rumi, the 13th century Sufi poet, reads like the Song of Songs.
