She Said, He Said 7

“If I tell you: your love is like a night without its day and I am in your love buried in a tomb with domes and tunnels…If I tell you: I am wounded by the thorns of this love and my soul is tormented; the scorpion of anguish dwells in this sorely stricken heart…If I tell you: outside, I am attired in silk but within, I am moaning, a prey to bitter thoughts. Now, tell me again; how should I love you?” She said.
“No, I will not tell you! If you are wounded by thorns, you planted them; and if you are clad in silk, you woven them….! My love must be sought, and bewilderment is the ruin where it lies buried…My truth is concealed in falsehood and before your eyes the phantom of my soul is raised and you are enraptured with it and you are telling it all of your secrets! No, I will not tell you, for you are still unripe! You are in your spring, and you have not seen the summer yet…!” He said.
“Unripe..?! No..!No. I am the fruit that never knew the orchard, I am the pearl that was strung before the sea was made… and I am the gold that was minted before the mine was discovered! …Unripe?” She said.
“…Oh for you to know the sign! Had there been no hope of the fruit, would I have planted the tree?” He said.
“Oh! My heart is palpitating and I am trembling in your love’s mighty arms like the dove in the eagle’s claws! Don’t tell me anything then; just show me the one path; do not let me follow ten…!” She said.
“So now you want to know how lovers bleed…?” He said.
“….Right now, I don’t know what to know of your love…I feel that I am dwelling on the forms of the existence of your love! I am a jaded unicorn; the saddle of your love has sorely stricken my back…! Now, and graciously, it’s your turn to send me comfort…” She said.
“My lady, my love… you are a moon whose like my sky never saw! My lady, my ray of God… if the never-ceasing bounty should offer kingdoms…if the hidden treasure should set before me all that is; I would bow down with my soul, I would lay my face in the dust, I would cry: ‘Of all these, your love is the one for me!’ Now; what else you would like to know…?” He said.
