Painful Desire

Tick tock, goes the clock, as I'm just waiting
For your mind to click, realize, and see
I want you. I feel the bittersweet sting.
Wish you would feel the same way about me.

Sleepless nights, soaked pillows; I can't take this.
A desire this strong, internally kills.
Without you, life looks like a great abyss.
Might even consider drinking some pills.

My longing for you causes me such pain.
Seriously, without you, it simply rains.
