Woah this is great. I like the somewhat clouded messages- I feel like if they're hard to understand, the author understands them perfectly :)

'Violent Ireland is a war within me' - I'm surprised you didn't use this in the summary. It ties the whole thing in well. Come to think of it, maybe you were right not to since that would've given the meaning away in one fell swoop.

The imagery in the first stanza is lovely. As it progresses, the metaphysical qualities begin to play on the physical, lending an aura of inner torment and longing to the narrator. It reminds me of a painting, especially with your choice of description but the poetic verse befitting a work of literature ('the tides push and pull like lips to lips').

Can see nothing to fault here. Well done!
