In Love, nothing exists between heart and Rabia al-Basri

In Love, nothing exists 
between heart and heart.

Speech is born out of longing,
True description from the real taste.

The one who tastes, knows;
the one who explains, lies.

How can you describe
the true form of Something
In whose presence you are blotted out ?

And in whose being you still exist ?
And who lives as a sign for your journey ?

~ Rabia al-Basri
