The Reed Bed

Since I was cut from the reed bed I have made this crying sound.
Anyone separated from someone he loves understands what I say:
Anyone pulled from a source longs to go back.

Rumi would say to stop searching outside myself, I know, I know...
my source is always there but I am human and I ache for this union with the divine lover that can pull me back to the reed bed. I ache to lie there. The warm water and my lover surrounding me as I surrounding him.

I could not exist, could not exist at all, unless you were in me.
-Saint Augustine
