A knight at night

My knight he called upon me last night.
He wants to rescue me again.
Will he save me from the chaos and confusion?
Or will I just confuse him in the end?

I'm worried you know.
I even told him so.
Wanting the peace, the tranquility.
Wanting the cuddling, the serenity.

Wanting nothing more than friends,
Not the means to a physical end.
Wanting to see if there could be more
Wanting to know if fantasies are in store.

Feeling happy, feeling thrilled
Feeling at peace and content and fulfilled.
Feeling as though this may be right
Feeling grateful for my knight.

Turning the page toward a new found day
Hoping that this contentment will stay.
Wanting the peace, the tranquility.
What will happen? We shall see.

I encountered trouble figuring out the rhyming pattern but very good.

Four stars and a quarter overall, out of five.
