I dived in your azure seas, engulfed

In their devouring storm; wilfully 

In their depths I sunk, seeking

Pearls on your seabed. 


And though devoid of light, these waters, 

I do not need it.

Your radiance has blinded me all the same.


I drained your bottomless wells, parched 

With thirst and desire; baptising 

My sins 'til they drowned. Flooding 

My garden of regrets. 


And though it crushes my lungs, this weight,

I do not mind it. 

Your beauty has stolen my breath all the same.


Thus I stagger, wordless in the dark. 

Wanting for nought.

All for naught.
