Baby it's getting
Cold outside. Just
Lie here with

Work can wait
Till tomorrow. It's
Only paperwork and

Honey, don't go
Home to her.
She doesn't love

Let's stay here,
Intertwined in our
Love till the

Don't touch the
Phone that vibrates
Beside you. It's

Sweetie, today you're
Staying here where
It's only Us.
A mistress pleading to her lover to stay with her for the day and leave his wife at home. She'll call throughout the day to find out where she's at while the mistress begs for him to ignore her.

I actually like the kind of rhythm I put to this. Along with the three lines of three words and the last line being just one.

Critics - as usual - are wanted.

Its a good poem, with a subtle kick to it. Its nothing generic, and definitely out of the box.

I like that approach - gives a new perspective too. This poem has that; it may be blunt in its presentation, but its certainly entertaining.

I say that because the three-three-three-one ratio of division was a good idea... gives each word a weight of its own.

... I don't know why, but this reminds me a lot of Chinese literature; its crisp, solid, but not wasted away. In most cases its true, but for the most part it highlights doubt right till the end.

Well done! Keep writing.

Somehow it sounds like a creepier and more depressing version of that Christmas song. :noes:

Just sounded like you changed the words in "Baby it's cold outside."

For the first line, yes. The whole poem, no.
