Trying to Sleep

 

I’m trying
to sleep
in this bed
with my
marriage
crumbling
beside me
and all I can
think about
is the man
who is
thinking
about me,
and how
he might
one day
stop
thinking
that we are
meant to be
together
which is
the ironic
thing
I’m thinking
right now
about
the man
asleep
beside me.
