1. LOVE! A WHIRLWIND!

His Love a whirlwind

Swept me away

From familiar emotions

And threw me into

The depths of a whirlpool

Down down into

The untrodden regions of emotions

Where every strom rages into a cyclone

A cyclone into a hurricane

Will I drown?

Will I survive?

2. RESTLESSNESS

Why does my heart yearn

For him who is the cause

Of all my sorrows?

Why does my mind

Refuse to erase

The memory of him

Who has dwelt me

A mental blow?

Why does my soul

Imprison itself

Within him?

If I knew the

Reason WHY!

I would not have

Loved him

The way I do!

But today I have

Come to terms with myself

And will not grief

For what should have been

But be happy

To have had the

Satisfaction of my soul!

Even though it was

For just a moment!
