My Unquenchable Desire - Poem
Oh how I long for you.
Each day I ache for your presence.
Each night is absolute agony without you.
Patiently I wait, knowing that soon I will be lost in your presence.
I am empty without you; my mind is dull and my heart aches.
I wonder aimlessly, melancholy is my only companion.
Anticipation grows each day as I look forward to your arrival.
Each night, my desire is heightened with the thought of your embrace,
But I am left, once again, hungering ever more.
I search for you, but you are not to be found.
This agony is unbearable.
I watch the hands of time slipping past a moonlit face, and I am left in unfulfilled desire.
Oh come to me!
Please don’t leave me in this wretched state.
I need to lie in your arms, to hear your soft lullaby.
Quench this mounting thirst for an uninterrupted liaison,
Oh Sleep Devine.
