as I lay sleeping

you lay next to me

waiting

plotting to throw over

whatever

it was I thought we had

& I could never

be that lying in wait

snake between the sheets

working

to destroy the love of another

wasting

time & days spent together

going nowhere with you

I could handle it more

If you would just please

walkout

on me

slam the door

make some effort

to pretend

I meant something more

than a sleeping prince

to plot against
