While You Sleep



WHILE YOU SLEEP
I hold a knife to your throat
My eyes glint like black fireflies
My broken teeth gleam red
For the pestilent rise and fall of your chest
Symbolises little except poisonous unfulfilment.

WHILE YOU SLEEP
I dream of ways to stop you waking
Imaginary guides whisper advice
Offering implements and opinions
Reality distorted so really untrue
I will wake satiated, but then, then I see you.

WHILE YOU SLEEP
I yearn cruelly for your death
And live in hope that one summer's day
You never shall wake, and instead will
Choke, choke, choke, choke, choke
On your sickening guile.
