From the movie Possession, based on the letters exchanged between Randolph Henry Ash and Christabel LaMotte during their intense secret relationship:
I shan’t forget the first glimpse of your form.
I have dreamt nightly of your face……
and walked the landscape of my life
with the rhythms of your writing
……ringing in my ears.
I shall never forget
our shining progress towards one another.
Never have I felt
such a concentration of my entire being.
I cannot let you burn me up.
Nor can I resist you.
No mere human can stand in a fire
and not be consumed.
