What does Esther 5:13 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Esther 5:13

Yet all this availeth me nothing
Is not equal or sufficient for me; it gives me no satisfaction and contentment:

so long as I see Mordecai the Jew sitting at the king's gate:
not rising up to bow unto him; this single circumstance spoiled all his joy and pleasure.
