Praying Prey… by Osalam Wosu 

I sleep

    And pray not

               to wake.

Cos beside 

    You lie 

       Ever waiting 

A predator 

       And I your prey. 

You floored 

        My defences 

And now you 

         Can pounce 

Anytime you want 

So I pray to sleep

Always.

And maybe you’d 

       Give up preying 

Or 

Kill me 

In my sleep.
