Drunk in Love

A lover walks a thousand miles

and confuses West for East, but keeps whirling.

That’s what love gives

to real lovers: drunkenness.


Being in love is drunkenness.

Being sober is not love.

Not until you are drunk in love

can you truly feel what it means to be ‘alive’.


Love is the wine for the soul.

Come, don’t just take a sip.

Gulp some more.

Go and get drunk!

Thank you
