“It is three at night. I have something to say… (Sexton)

“It is three at night. I have something to say. You are so valuable. You shine out. You are a magic star. You are a body of blood made beautiful. How I admire, sit back and adore you. How thirsty I am for that. How you feed me.”

Anne Sexton, from a letter to Lois Ames dated 11 January 1969; AnneSexton: A Self-Portrait in Letters
