My love for you is hungry as the sea
As turbulent, as tidal, as forlorn
As deep with unrequited mystery
As the hungries for your

As elemental, vast, and tempest-torn
No mountain is more awesome and enduring
No moon so full of passion for the light
hungry as the sea forever

No garden more forbidden or alluring
No watchman more acquainted with the night
I’ve learned such love leaves me with little pleasure
Nor does it die from lack of recompense

It is from birth a precious, haunted treasure
Long buried just beyond my innocence
It is a treasure I now offer you
That you are loved regardless what you do
