Unfulfilled Desires!

Unfulfilled desires, oh,

why must you haunt me?


Descend on me at ghastly hours,

unprepared, I always seem.


Grabbing hold of consciousness,

and crashing all my dreams,


I wake from restless sleep,

tangled between the sheets.


Impatient fluffy sheep I count,

yet, never do they bleat…


My realizations are not profound;

all my hopes are blasphemy.


Unrequited enthusiasm—

has shattered my esteem.


Then in the distance I hear a sound:

the trill of a mockingbird in a tree.


Sweet, blithesome wish-fulfillment,

when will it ever come to be?
