Lips Of An Angel

Honey, why you calling me so late?
It's kinda hard to talk right now.
Honey, why are you crying? Is everything okay?
I gotta whisper 'cause I can't be too loud.

Alyssa was woken up by the sound of the phone on the bedside table ringing. She quickly sat up and answered it to be sure that the ringing wouldn't wake up the person sleeping next to her.

"Hello?" She whispered.

There was a sob on the line, "Ly..." was let out but the sentence was immediately cut off.

Alyssa pulled the covers off her legs as she stood up and rushed out of the room, "Dennise?"

The voice sobbed again, "Yeah."

"Why are you crying? Are you alright?"

Well, my man's in the next room,
Sometimes I wish he was you.
I guess we never really moved on.

"No, he yelled at me again," Dennise cried. Alyssa shook her head while she listened. She knew that she was referring to her husband, "He's blaming it on me."

"Wait, blaming what?" She sat down on their couch and waited for her answer.

She heard the former libero sigh, "I know he doesn't really mean it. He's just upset that he didn't get his contract with Ginebra... but he's yelling at me. He's upset and he's yelling at me and pulling on my arm all the time."

Alyssa couldn't say anything, she just listened. The truth was, she loved her; she always would... and her voice, even though it was broken, was beautiful.

It's really good to hear your voice saying my name,
It sounds so sweet.
Coming from the lips of an angel,
Hearing those words, it makes me weak.

And I never wanna say goodbye,
But, girl, you make it hard to be faithful,
With the lips of an angel.


She shook her head, guessing she was done talking, "Yes?"

Dennise drew in a shaky breath, "I'm sorry... I seem to always run back to you when something goes wrong," she paused, "it's just that I miss you, and I-I know I shouldn't. But I do. And I love you, I love you so much and I can't stop and I-I just think about you all the time, it's like I'm mentally cheating on LA, and I shouldn't be... I shouldn't and I can't and, I-I just..."

"Den," She stopped her. She had heard it all before, it was like a weekly confession. She shook her head; she loved hearing it, but it always left her heartbroken.

It's funny that you're calling me tonight,
And, yes, I've dreamt of you too,
And does he know you're talking to me?
Will it start a fight?
No, I don't think she has a clue.

"I love you, Dennise." She whispered to her.

"Ly... I-I well, I mean I love you too, but I-I'm married, and you're married. We made the decision to get married, and not to each other... so I-I know I want to be with you, but I can't - we can't..." She stopped because the crying started again.

Well, my man's in the next room,
Sometimes I wish he was you.
I guess we never really moved on.
