He couldn’t imagine being colder in that moment
Even though the flames were quite toasty
All he had wanted to do was turn the temperature up a bit
Too bad the electric heater started the house fire
Claire wore many hats. She absolutely loved them, switching between them multiple times every day, but it was always the shoes that she was deathly afraid of. She could be mom, wife, daughter, confidant, friend, enemy, goddess, and demon, but when it came to shoes, well, then she felt she had to pretend to be someone else.
That’s why she decided one day to just go barefoot. It meant sometimes stepping on things the wrong way, freezing her toes, or just having her feet absolutely filthy, but they were always hers, and she could sleep well at night knowing that.
Crisp hundred dollar bill was slipped inside the card
Okay, maybe that wasn’t enough. A second one went in
Now that should buy some mercy or at least forgiveness
She couldn’t want that much more from him
Everything had gone according to plan
Quaint superstitions and taboos were maintained
Under his watchful eye
Everything had gone perfectly
Now he realized that perfect had been from his perspective
Couldn’t have anticipated she would have so much trouble with it
Everyone is a bit weird. People were messy, and she was people

Couldn’t just walk away
Really he knew he should
Until he took that first step, then he knew he shouldn’t
She was just so darn perfect!
He ended up adopting the kitten. Now to sneak it past his wife
Pinching her eyes closed, she wished as hard as she could
If there was even a small chance of her wish coming true she had to try
Needing to see him one more time she opened her eyes full of hope
Even though she knew he would never be there again
Going the extra mile was Gus’ motto
Unless it was for Samantha
If it was for her, it was an extra five miles
Loving her from afar was so hard
Then he had a chance to show her his feelings
Yet being the best man at her wedding was probably not the right time
