Frozen in Ice (Part Two)

He led her to his truck, and then quickly to a nearby motel,

Slow and easy he stirred her embers into a raging fire,
Filling her needs with practiced deeds, in ways she would never tell,
Then he said, “It’s time for you to go, though your body I still admire,”

For the first time since she had ventured to seek fun in the town,
Did she remember her husband and kids at home,
She wanted her normal life where peace and quiet were found,
“If only they will take me back, no longer will I roam,”

The consequences of her actions were terrible to comprehend,
It was too late to take back the wantonness she had displayed,
What could she say to justify herself? “Don’t worry, he’s just a friend,”
It was easier to blame her husband for the choices she had made,

From the shadows she heard a man’s voice, booming for all to hear,
“Rhonda, it looks like you’ve been rode hard and put away wet,”

That voice, she recognized it, it was a friend she knew from church,
“You’re not as good as you claimed to be,” he said with a sneer,
“I see you’ve been playing around, and left your husband in the lurch,
 But I won’t tell, if you share with me, I’ll even call you dear,”

He laughed again, a guttural laugh, and approached in the light,
She shrank back in horror, as her friend whispered her name,
Rhonda grabbed David’s arm, “Let’s go, before he wants to fight!”
But her real fear was everyone would hear, and all would know her shame,
