Strangers in the night
It was a dark and stormy night;
A bit like having make-up sex,
In the middle of an unresolved fight.
Thence upon a time,
They had a go at it twice;
Only because the first time he fumbled,
Not unlike the three blind mice.
With her thoughts far, far away,
She lay awake to watch him sleep;
A smile played on her scarlet lips
Lost, he looked, like Little Beau Peep’s sheep.
There lies my boy, she thought,
As she smoothed his furrowed brow;
Now that we might have found love,
Where the hell do we go from here now?
As her baby slept,
The innocent sleep of a child;
She updated her Facebook status,
And smoked a Classic Mild.
Shaken by the questions that plagued her,
Not stirred, as you might note;
She tried hard to battle the demons,
And dug a pencil out of her Kookai tote.
As the shopping list made its way down the sheet,
The silhouette in the bed began stirring;
No, I’m not ready for you to wake up just yet,
She thought, with her mind whirring.
One night, oh lord,
One night is not what it takes;
I need to know if this is the real thing,
Before that man in my bed awakes.
He mumbled a word in his sleep,
She strained her ears to hear;
And on her worried face,
A cute little frown did appear.
Say that again, will you,
I’m not sure I heard you, my eternal flame;
What the hell did you just say, asshole?
That’s not even my friggin’ name!
