Let love melt into memory and pain into songs

Peace, my heart, let the time for the parting be sweet.
Let it not be a death but completeness.
Let love melt into memory and pain into songs.
Let the flight through the sky end in the folding of the wings over the nest.
Let the last touch of your hands be gentle like the flower of the night.
Stand still, O Beautiful End, for a moment, and say your last words in silence.
I bow to you and hold up my lamp to light you on your way.

The meeting that is like all devouring death

Love, my heart longs day and night for the meeting with you for the meeting that is
like all devouring death.
Sweep me away like a storm; take everything I have; break open my sleep and plunder
my dreams. Rob me of my world.
In that devastation, in the utter nakedness of spirit, let us become one in beauty.
Alas for my vain desire. Where is this hope for union except in thee, my God?

I would spend the time being with you

If I could have all the time in the world,
I know what I would do,
I would spend the time
In pleasure sublime,
Just by being with you.

You tug at my heart


Remove this melancholy that drapes my soul.
Your disagreeable state made me gloomy;
My affection for you has grown unemotional
With no sense of conscience.
You tug at my heart,
You graze my face with your ill-mannered hand,
You use your mouth for encouraging lies
And your eyes program my additions.
On my knees I beg for a remedy;
You savage man, let me retire.
Understand my loathing for you
As I understand your hatred for me.
Let me go, let me be, let me deteriorate
Without your succor.
