"Un ange frappe a ma porte
Est-ce que je le laisse entrer
Ce n'est pas toujours ma faute
Si les choses sont cassées
Le diable frappe a ma porte
Il demande a me parler
Il y a en moi toujours l'autre
Attiré par le danger"


I lean over the table
ignoring the stares of those around me.
Grinning (recklessly)
With a glint in my eyes.
“So?”
“So what?”
“You afraid?”
“Hardly.”
“Sure”
Drawn out, skepticism in a single syllable.
Scoffing,
taunts.
“I’m not scared, you know.”
Repeated.
“Then do it.”
“Fine.”
Hands clasp,
Wrists lock
muscles bulge.
Bets fly.
then…
Thump.
Man down!
And I win the arm wrestling match.

I really can't arm wrestle for my life, no upper body strength at all!! So I wrote this for my buff-ish friend.
