Inverted Tiered Haiku

1-2-1
I
watch you
sleep

2-3-2
Heaving
chest, and slow,
deep breaths

3-5-3
You look so
comfortable curled
up like that

5-7-5
I wonder what you
would say if I woke you with
bloodstained clothes and bleach

(I’m thoroughly enjoying the lengths to which my Inverted Tiered Haiku and Tiered Haiku forms are allowing me to explore character development).
