The Essential Rumi by Rumi
My heart is burning with love

All can see this flame

My heart is pulsing with passion

like waves on an ocean

my friends have become strangers

and Iā€™m surrounded by enemies

But Iā€™m free as the wind
no longer hurt by those who reproach me

Iā€™m at home wherever I am

And in the room of lovers

I can see with closed eyes
the beauty that dances

Behind the veils
intoxicated with love
I too dance the rhythm
of this moving world

I have lost my senses
in my world of lovers
