White, Warm Sheets

 


 

White, Warm Sheets

 

in my white warm sheets asleep

underneath my woolly blankets

attacked

 

o’ what a desperate person she is

and though

she pulls away my pillow

 

i will not wake just yet

i want to sleep

a little longer

 

dream, dream, dream

  1. The economy of words really enhances the desperation of the emotion within this poem.
