ArmsSafe from fear, safe from harm
That's how I feel when in your arms
Hands so gentle placed in mine
I will always cherish this time
The sight of your eyes, the feel of your hair
The smell of your breath as it disperses through the air
The gruff on your chin, the curve of your lips
Your gentle hands placed on my hips
Nothing too serious but time together
Embracing the moments we look at each other
Eskimo kisses with a giggle or two
Look into your eyes just as you do
Arms wrapped around while I bury my face in your chest
Making it easy to close my eyes and rest
Asleep in your arms makes feel so calm
Waking up with you there to watch the dawn

Tonight, no matter what the voice said, Madeleine Lavoie would not listen to it, she would not sympathize with it and, most importantly, she would not obey it. She gripped her sheets in tight fists and promised herself tonight would be different.

To ward off her loneliness,

Now you're in trouble, I hope you know.
Don't get mad at me for your stupid mistake
Only one time, that's all it'll take
You're an idiot for not listening to me
You dug your own grave, I'll just let you be
Just don't drag us all down into the dirt
You didn't listen to me you inconsiderate jerk
A simple "ok" would have sufficed
But now it's your sanity you have sacrificed
Goodbye my dear, I wish you well
But you probably don't care, so just go to hell.
