Folie à deux

you claim to hold
in me
a reverence
even as you
waylay my foot path
with trifling expectation

what more is there
to feed you, that
the worm you set upon
my wisdom
has not chewn to a
cavernous hollow?

contented, in
my partisan portion
hands clasped together
yours, and mine
side by side
your anima suddenly excited
drawing hurried attention
if to produce
a reaction, from me
to reinforce, within you
an understanding of comfort
that I am mutually invested
even this you will intrinsically distrust.
