A foul, maddening invader,
hidden out of sight,
has crept into my bedroom
in the middle of the night.
It's ubiquitous, incessant chirping
keeping me awake.
How much more can I endure
before I start to break?

Is the critter an allegory of mental illness or possibly undisclosed desires?

An interesting interpretation, but I didn't have time to get that deep. To paraphrase Freud, sometimes an insect is just an insect.
