(1606)  Ei durmada madakata

This irresistible power of intoxication,
Please do say, why have You allowed it?
In my bloodstream this fickleness,
Leaking into form, why have You brought it?

What was there to say, I did not wish to speak;
Now heart's hidden secrets, they have been revealed.
From the world concealed, what was in a mental niche,
Unto light, that You have lavished.

I am not free from shame, like You, oh Beloved;
I don't tell my inner secrets, no matter how peerless.
But You are in my mind... You've gone on hearing everything;
What was at my depths You've seized and brought to notice.
