One night, Kyla and I were soaking in the hot tub

And I was about to give her a relaxing backrub.

But that was before this huge extraterrestrial ship

Appeared and sucked Kyla away before I could get a grip

Of her arms and pull her back down to me.

The last image that I had allowed myself to see

Was that vessel zooming away before I felt the shame

Of not rescuing Kyla when she called out my name.
