Foiled Getaway

I don’t know if it’s allowed, but I have another Fifty:


She lies there, sprawled out,
limbs akimbo.
I lift my head to sneak
a peek;
Move slowly, try not
to disturb
the ebb and flow
of her dreaming.
She turns her head:
“I want more story, Mom.
Please come back to bed.”
Sigh, turn back.
So much for my scheming.
