A description of the experience
POEMS OF SURDAS translated by Professor John Stratton Hawley
Away! Go back to where you spent the night!
Manmohan, what clues are vou trying to erasel
Signs of tight embraces are not so quickly hid.
A necklace, now stringless, is etched into your chest:
what clever girl was pressed against your sleeping heart?
Her hair is on your clothes, and your jewels are askew:
they were tangled in a bout with her lust-hardened breasts.
Teethmarks, nailmarks: oh what you've endured
to have your fill of passion in that other woman's lair.
Surdas says, your honey lips have lost their sheen
and your sleepless eyes bear the weight of lethargy.
