Arouse me from my slumber

With sweet echoes in my ear

Every uttered syllable

Diminishes my fear

Your voice falls softly

Like leaves upon the beach

Encompassing my everything

In a wave of silent speech

Your mutterings drive me to madness

A rapturous lament

An endless internal tickle

With no place to vent

Sending shivers up my spine

I writhe in ecstasy

I turn to find an empty bed

With no one next to me
