My Mistake

My mind astir, I lie awake, 
no way to make this anguish break 
that comes with guilt, it might return, 
a cursed time I cannot spurn, 
nor slay with amends, life at stake. 

In every creaking stroll I quake; 
leaving her to play makes me shake. 
My troubles with each new day churn, 
my mind astir. 

This is no dream, it's my mistake; 
no sleep is mine, I lie awake 
evenings grow cold, while she I yearn, 
and grim thoughts through my body burn. 
The shadow lurks; I twist and turn, 
my mind astir.
