what do I mean?

I wrote of John Dowland's songs that the melodies are "elaborate yet simple." Reading that now, I think, "what on earth does than mean?" Can something be elaborate and yet simple? I think not. Or perhaps it is possible. Sometimes language fails.

Last night I fell asleep before ten pm. I slept a long time, but Patsy woke me up every hour or so. She would cry in my ear, lie on top of me, knock something off of the desk in my bedroom. I was at the end of my rope. She is adorable and sweet, but sometimes I wish I could make her disappear.

You've spoken of getting her a friend. Do you think that she is like this because she is bored/lonely?
