Longing Makes the Heart Grow Deep

When everything falls back strange and empty
And we are no longer hungry, even,
No longer met by desire,
No longer thrilled by the sea.

desiderium sinus cordis.

We are covered in this great love,
that never needed us.
Come, Holy Spirit.

Everything comes close,
nothing comes in.
Nothing gathers to be fed upon,
everything eats itself away.

Come, Holy Spirit.
