Handmaiden

You surge into me and I receive,
the handmaiden of my Lord

Why tremble in the dark?

Dark, dark is the night
but why tremble? asks the Lord;
Everywhere am I – when you accept this, you accept my power

My dear, you know where obsessing leads.

My dear, you know where obsessing leads.
You know its path and destination.
That which is irresistible does not guarantee health,
nor does following it lead to fragrant places.

Accepting Blindness

You accept my blindness and work with me;
sometimes sight comes only afterward

May my love be stronger than my rage

May my love be stronger than my rage
and my self-restraint stronger than my chaos

Pain is a wise advisor

Pain is a wise advisor
but a poor leader

The ever-present decision

If you seek to surpass the self, you must die.
This is the only path.
Many try to discover another path
only to find themselves on this very path with
this very decision, again, before them
