Truths of Love (48)

I shall speak no more of separation

since such is the Beloved’s preference.

Union that is achieved by my own desire

will never resolve my heart’s predicament.

I shall not submit to anyone else again,

even if love’s flames consume my very soul.

I am lovesick, and my Beloved is the physician,

whether in union or separation, with pain or with cure.

Do not express your opinion about the game of love,

for in truth love is not a game.
