Nothing But A Pea Beneath Your Sheets

Layers upon layers,
Pressing down,
Engulfing and enveloping.
Smothering, as if a pillow
Were not enough to get the job done,
You weigh upon me,
Bear down on me,
Like all the weight of the world
Piled atop my head.
And then you have the nerve
To cry out in pain,
As if it were my fault.
An inconvenience I placed upon you,
Suffocating and entangled.
You crush me while bemoaning
Your unpleasant situation
And I die beneath the burden
Of every mistake you've made.
Forgive me, Princess,
For getting in your way.
