A Poem by Pema Dorje

let us be this empty yearning together, this ancient ache of longing, the heart a compass, taking us where, Love is the goal, I'll meet you there

the urge to merge is an ancient ache 

        -- deep calling to deep -- 

to surrender as a drop into the sea of bliss, 
which we feel in the beloveds kiss 

it's the bliss of breaking through the barrier of self to become all, 
beyond these filtering senses that clamor and call

becoming the cosmic drunk with stars in our head 
and oceans deep in our eyes

speechless with sympathies choking our throat, 
drowning in love 'cuz there's no way to float...

I really like this. It's deceptively simple on the surface and yet so deep. Facile and easy in its initial phase yet meaningful and complex in its meaning.
