Cold Arms

Written by Jai Karla

They drove home together in a car that had the rotting stench of liquor

Staring at each other

Thinking about how this would be a night to remember

Well she'd loved him since the tender age of 10

Everything that he was and everything that made him him

From his dirt brown eyes to his perfectly frazzled hair

Nevertheless, he never really felt the same

So, in the cold arms of others she tried to find the true love affair

but through it all,she could never forget his sublime intoxicating air

And now,


Would finally be the night

Where they consummated this heavenly affair

And as they reached their resting place

She pushed him on to the bed with gentle care

He smiled and drifted into a serene sleepless state

Thinking about how stupefyingly lucky he was

To have her as a completely angelic friend

And right then she took her final steps Climbing on to him to fulfill what she felt  destiny entailed

He shook awake and pleaded to her right there

I don't want this, not today or ever again

She told him to stay awake as what would come next he could never forget

He whimpered and screamed telling her to let go

But the whiskey had taken away

All the little inklings of his control

He begged her to make it stop

But she just told him this is what all men want

And when it finally came to a deafening halt

She kissed him and told him we are soul mates now and forever on

While he just lay there and cried

Unable to move; immobilized by  terrifying fright

Two years later

when he finally told his best friend all about

the night he never forgot

All his friend laughingly asked -

Was she devilishly hot?
