My favorite personal poem I've written. PLEASE REVIEW!!!

I wake in terror to the thought
Of never having you
Its claim upon me is so
Vehemently blue
The stars will not come out unless
You tell them too

I will not leave this place
Until I am made a fool
Why does such a simple creature
Have a hold on me?
What is this cosmic power
That chains me to this solemn tree

Oh, how I wonder and I
Blunder for the signet key
Her eyes they told me
Hands they sold me,
Never to be free.

A slave made, was I,
A hopeless wretch,
A power, a scheme,
A flame of desire,

No hope to escape,
No ladder to climb
Trapped forever,
Feels so strange,
It’s love.
