Dear, Sleep

Wild and painful suitor
I cling to your visits and uncompromising
You embarrass me!
I ache for your presence
Dark circles and fatigue are scars leftover
from your inconsistent acts
My wrath against you is laughable
You laugh and join me
at the witching hour
or at odd hours
when I have no time to be seduced
Dear, Sleep,
How many times will you disappoint?
Why must I continue to take your crumbs of attention?
I scream to surround myself with you
You laugh and leave according to your whims
Wild and painful, you seduce
without shame or care
Dear, Sleep,
You are brutal and I am weary
