Please don't try to distract me

(2627)  Cander alo lage na bhalo

The moon's light does not feel good;
Darling, You did not arrive.
What serves a fish wearing a pearl coronet,
If cozy nest be not acquired.

Today the bed of thorns is my dress;
Mixing with lasya there is shyness.
Eyes shed tears, heart-and-mind's pithy essence,
What is this to which You gave rise!

Celestial moon is not of use to me;
Moon of the mind-sky I'd find near.
Thoughts seething, I keep singing
In a tune, rhythm, metric time.
