A Lament

Why do you have to make me wait?
don't you know how I long for you?
Is it to prove I have no control?
and that you are your own master!
I lie awake in torment,
every second an eternity.
Don't you know you're the only one,
that can bring unto me relief.
Nothing else will ever do,
Its you and only you!
Give up your vanity and come embrace me,
stay through the night and give me company.
The time spent with you never seems enough,
In this bliss the night slips by fast as a summer breeze.
Have I not spoken enough to assuage your vain self?
Cease your taunts and show yourself, I entreat.
O Sleep, Come to me!
