The secret

The secret

I go around with a crushing desire
to talk about that which I do not know.

Something to do with a Lion
Who devours Its lover.

Love - the big cat
Who stole my Lord's tongue,

swallowed up Merwan
and began a silent prowling.

Love is a secret, my Lord said, to be kept.
All I'm saying, Lord -

let me in on the secret.
Let me keep it with You.

Let me keep it with You forever
until forever is no more.

O child of God, prove trustworthy;
He'll whisper it in your ear.
