Love has nothing to do with

Love has nothing to do with
the five senses and the six directions:
its goal is only to experience
the attraction exerted by the Beloved.
Afterwards, perhaps, permission

will come from God:
the secrets that ought to be told with be told
with an eloquence nearer to the understanding
that these subtle confusing allusions.
The secret is partner with none

but the knower of the secret:
in the skeptic’s ear
the secret is no secret at all.

Mevlana
Mathnawi III, 1417-1424
