Ever drunk with love

The Lover is ever drunk with love;
He is free, he is mad,
He dances with ecstasy and delight.

Caught by our own thoughts,
we worry about every little thing,
But once we get drunk on that love,
Whatever will be, will be.


– Poetic version by Jonathan Star and Shahram Shiva

  1. let me add what I have by Rumi on this subject. Hope you don’t mind other’s adding to this site 🙂

    I am hopelessly in love with you,
    no point giving me advice.
    I have drunk love’s poison,
    no point taking any remedy.
    They want to chain my feet
    it is my heart that has gone mad.
