In the silence of the endless night

Sometimes on your bed my love,
in the silence of the endless night
My limbs go limp with love's intoxication
And by the intensity of ecstatic flight
My mind becomes a swamp in some wilderness
And somewhere close to it
Sleep, like a bird in the wee of winter
Smitten by fears of a hunter's apparition
Threshes about wildly, cries.
In the silence of the endless night!
Sometimes on your bed my love
Desires, trapped inside your cavernous chest
Reel in pain like a slave, endure!

For a moment a thought passes through my mind
That you are not my beloved
But a fair maiden in some city beyond some shore
And I am a soldier of the enemy of your land
Who hasn't spent a night for a long time
to lighten this burden on his soul!
Carrying a desire for endless luxury and pleasure
I am a runaway from my unit for many days now!
This thought passes through my mind
Sometimes on your bed my love
In the silence of the endless night!

(Beyond the sight)
