quatrain 533

From sunlight, a version of quatrain #533:
O Beloved, today you want ever more:
We're already mad
and yet you pull
at the last threat of our sanity.

You've torn away our veil,
You've torn away our clothes.
We're completely naked!

And still you are tearing!

version by Jonathan Star and Shahram Shiva
