Stout lover’s journey through

Near-glass sand

Razor-like cliffs

Blackened valleys infested with doubts

All this and more

More heartache and madness

Ignoring inconvenient watery needs

He is living and dying as hers alone

To touch his beloved beauty, just once

She forgoes her human form

To become waters of life affirming love

Her ethereal reflection lovingly pleads

Amorous consumption is what we need

They live and die as one
