Possession

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.
