I'm Not Saying This Right

You bind me, and I tear away in a rage to open out
into air, a round brightness, a candlepoint,
all reason, all love.

This confusing joy, your doing,
this hangover, your tender thorn.

You turn to look, I turn.
I'm not saying this right.

I am a jailed crazy who ties up spirit-women.
I am Solomon.

What goes comes back. Come back.
We never left each other.

A disbeliever hides disbelief,
but I will say his secret.

More and more awake, getting up at night,
spinning and falling with love for Shams.

I thoroughly enjoyed this. :) Was this one of those Rumi type poems?

Yes, this is a Rumi poem. I do the daily rumi every Wednesday, and I posted it here as well. I'm glad you liked it.
