This week’s prompt: Sleep
Some nights you are as elusive as happiness,
You tease me at bedtime
You say: come take me
Lose your self in my arms
And I fall for your lure.
Then hours later I am awake
Alone I look for you, only to find,
You have run off to sucker another poor sap.
You leave me dissatisfied
Unfulfilled as I wrestle with my physical self.
When I most desire you I find you laughing at me
Fleeing our marital bed I thought
We had a right and ownership of.
For so long we were
Fated to be joined each night.
But have you grown tired of me?
Do I no longer satisfy you?
Is that why I am left so often bereft?
Floundering, seeking your embrace
Your kiss your soothing touch.
Another night of tediousness
Tossing and turning
My body craves you
