Any poetry and litterture about perfectlove for God and God always and forever in all kinds of possible way ? Talking about God only, the perfecct and absolute all-knowing love and mercy. I guess I should make my own poetry, I don't want to think of nothing but my God, you that I'm adressing always and in everything. Forgive me for I have stranded my way, lost and imperfect sould. BUt you love me and made me as I am, please help me get united. By definition I am from your hands, your spirit, your perfection, because you shaped me, perfeect lover and absolute. I am from your house and splendor, no wife can be more happy, because your created happiness and it all. I should list the perfections of men and women and see that you have them all, all-pervading and all-sustaining perfection.
McGinn's anthology of Christian mysticismBut you should not try to love God when in ecstatic, confused, or deranged states, as this will paradoxically lead to egomania and distance from God. You have to be in your right mind. Part of God's love for you is wanting you to be well.
John Donne wrote some poems like that.
