inner agitation

I sat beside you on a couch
In canted ground-
I sat on its lower side-
On purpose-
Waiting for you to roll over me-
But you were hanging tight on the upper side,
And that pushed me to look up in the sky
And wish the earth was vertical-

    Thank you for welcoming me, Debbie! Great to be in a companion of poets. "canted ground" means "On an inclined plane". Do you think the meaning is not so clear in this line of my poem? Thank you for your comment.
