In The Foyer Of Hotel Lonely

Being lonely is so wearing

Eyes averted fingers drum

Lasering of furtive glances

Pain of self-conscious hum

 

Repressed passion lashes

Barricades vast but hidden

Terror of getting through

Fears that come unbidden

 

Desire versus inhibition

Self-image sorely racked

By corroded self-esteem

Egos that failure hacked

 

Behaviours only reinforce

Self-loathing and gloom

Temporary guests unable

To secure a double room

 

A porter eyes them kindly

Seen this charade before

Knows before long they'll

Sigh and head for the door

Lovely as usual! Are all your characters so desperate!!!! Very funny but also sad at the same time. One has seen this happen often, or thinks one has. Jennifer
