Love has subjugated me:

I read the following poem in Ivan's Poetry website. I liked it very much. Thought to share it with all. This is a poem from Hadewijch - A Belgium based 13th Century Poet.

Love has subjugated me:

To me this is no surprise,

For she is strong and I am weak.

She makes me

Unfree of myself,

Continually against my will.

She does with me what she wishes;

Nothing of myself remains to me;

Formerly I was rich,Now I am poor: everything is lost in love
