Intellect and love are made of
Intellect ties people in knots and risks nothing,
but love dissolves all tangles and
Intellect is always cautious and advises:
‘Beware too much ecstasy’,
whereas love says: ‘Oh, never mind! Take the plunge!’
Intellect does not easily break down,
whereas love can effortlessly reduce
itself to rubble.
But treasures are hidden among ruins.
A broken heart hides treasures.
