The love I seek

I want a lover with a fiery heart,
at war with the world and the stars,
a lover not afraid of bloodshed or murder,
and whose fire no water can quench.
-Mevalana Jallaluddin Mohammed Rumi

In love, ask for madness,
a life abandoned and a mind lost,
ask for dangerous adventures
in deserts filled with blood and fire!
-Mevalana Jallaluddin Mohammed Rumi

read my "dervish" for my thoughts regarding my brief but life-changing encounter with the Mevlevi order.
