Motel wednesday

from The half​-​life of a gleam by starfish64



Motel Wednesday

Cloudy afternoon; suburban skies
Dirty windowpanes; Motel Wednesday

Just a Hideaway by the roadside
Anonymity; That's Motel Wednesday

These are wee small hours in a run-down fleabag roadhouse
Two lost souls collide in no man’s land
There are no future prospects, nor brighter days ahead
At least they’re only in here for this need to feel alive

That's the bottom line
The bitter truth
This is motel wednesday

No way to palliate
to deny the fact
that this is only motel wednesday

That's how she breaks the promise, she’d thought she’d never break.
The precious kind of promise, that he never really gave.
Her marriage’s long since made true north
It’s as cold as it can be
He way beyond to live a life, what life was meant to be.

Evening shadows have on the run
Traffic jam - the nasty smell of diesel in the air

A dripping tap, footsteps on the floor
Raindrops on the windows
Lousy faded art-prints
witness sad all this decay
