While unperishing love melted my bones

While unperishing love melted my bones

While unperishing love melted my bones,
I cried
I shouted again and again,
louder than the waves of the
billowing sea,
I became confused,
I fell,
I rolled,
I wailed,
Bewildered like a madman,
Intoxicated like a crazy drunk,
so that people were puzzled
and those who heard wondered.
Wild as a rutting elephant which cannot
be mounted,
I could not contain myself.
