Coil - X. Enochian Calling Ii - A (sonnet Lxi) lyrics

rate me

Is it thy will thy image should keep open<br />

My heavy eyelids to the weary night?<br />

Dost thou desire my slumbers should be broken,<br />

While shadows like to thee do mock my sight?<br />

Is it thy spirit that thou send'st from thee<br />

So far from home into my deeds to pry,<br />

To find out shames and idle hours in me,<br />

The scope and tenor of thy jealousy?<br />

O, no! thy love, though much, is not so great:<br />

It is my love that keeps mine eye awake;<br />

Mine own true love that doth my rest defeat,<br />

To play the watchman ever for thy sake:<br />

For thee watch I whilst thou dost wake elsewhere,<br />

From me far off, with others all too near.
