Where art my lover, Sleep?
Hath she abandoned me for another’s bed?
Whilst I lay here cold and alone
Longing for her warm embrace?
For no other can fill her place beside me
None such mere a person
Can bring the joy and fear
That my dearest love
Doth fill me with whilst we lay at night
The unspoken desires of my mind
Unravel in the darkened hours
Upon which she weaves her web
And the fears which haunt me
Ferment into a fruitful bloom
Upon which envelope me in a cold sweat
That racks my body with a tremulous terror
Yet how can I escape my one so dear
The one that holds me close at night
As she whispers things of fantasy
And drags me into their reality
I pray that she returneth soon
For her absence leaves me restless
Seeking out my loving dear
So that she'd might whisper by my ear, once more
