The absence of love
Why do you elude me so?
Do I not deserve you?
I await with bated breath for your arrival
I await the flutter in my heart and butterflies in my belly
Your admirers so often speak of
But time does not stand still
How long am I to wait?
This bated breath incapacitates my lungs
My heart, she murmurs, not flutters
My belly, she pangs with the hunger of unrequited love
Tell me, what am I to do?
I have searched for you
amongst countless unworthy men
Your tree seems fruitless, barren
I am told you are unsearchable
That you must find me
I await with bated breath
An open heart
And a ravenous belly
