“Another Invitation” (Rumi)

My mouth, my entire body, laughs. A rose is all rose.

My loving is here with you. You come before dawn with a torch, and you take me, but my soul remains back there alone.

Issue another invitation. Do not ask for one without the other.

If you do not go tonight and bring my soul to me, I will become a loud, disruptive noise, and I will not be making it alone.
