Inside this new love, die!

Posted by Pelgrim on January 5th, 2012

Inside this new love, die
Your way begins on the other side
Become the sky
Take an axe to the prison wall

Walk out like someone suddenly
born into colour
Do it now

You’re covered with thick cloud.
Slide out the side.
Die, and be quiet.
Quietness is the surest sign that you have died

Your old life was a franticĀ runningĀ from silence
The speechless full moon comes out now.

– Jalaluddin Rumi
