I reached for you,  
Even though distance shook  
My strength, 
But nothing found I  
In the cold night set before me.  
Then, you came 
With the weight of your glory 
You came, filling the space 
Behind and before 
You came, in the pressure and terror 
Of all that you are. 
In half, bent, blood boiled silent scream 
You came, like a rambling man 
Like a stallion heaving and stamping,  
Snorting and kicking at my disbelief,  
You came, not speaking, not gently, 
But in tremendum; 
I was not the shore, but the water you swelled within,  
You rolled me, from my depths to shallows,  
Your constant wake whitecapped  
My soul.  
God, augustum  
Spirit, mysterium  
Torrens voluptatis.
