Me Raqsam Me Raqsam ( I Dance, I Dance) [redux]

Intoxicated By Love

Because of your love
I have lost my sobriety
I am intoxicated 
by the madness of love

In this fog 
I have become stranger to myself
I'm so drunk
I've lost the way to my house

In the garden
I see only your face
From trees and blossoms
I inhale only your fragrance

Drunk with the ecstasy of love
I can no longer tell the difference 
between drunkard and drink 
Between lover and beloved

-- Rumi (tr Fereydoun Kia)
