The Big Bang Theory.

Hottest Highway To Hell.

The Big Bang Theory!

O-> O+ <-O O+ O->

She pulled it out gently
from inside his white drawers
wrapping her fingers
around it in a tight grip.

Holding it snugly
in her hand she gazed at it
caressing the length of it.

She boldly stared at the tip
running her finger over
the hole and closing her eyes
worried it might explode
in her hand without warning.

She gingerly slid her finger
around and under and over
its most curved part
then lowering her head she slid it
into her mouth several inches.

Closing her lips as it entered
she tasted its metallic tang,
a bit of warm oil caressed
her tongue and she swallowed it.

She trembled as she slid it
all the way in and held it there.
the excitement and fear was palpable
she knew what was to come,
and was sure the end was near.

 

 

Suddenly she pulled down hard
near where she gripped it
only to hear a loud
and disappointing click in response.

She pulled harder five more times
in desperation and still
found no satisfaction.

Removing it from her mouth
she realized the gun was empty.

Her husband knowing how she'd been
despondent over her recent loss
of a baby they had sired
had the foresight to wisely
remove all the bullets
and put them somewhere safe.

She placed the gun back
in the white drawer and sighed.

Slipping under the sheets
she chased a dreamless sleep
living to see another day.
plus three more lovely children,
as she traveled forward
down a road that had
led her past her
route .44 Magnum to hell.
