    Lying in a Broken Hotel

    All my life
    I haven't done well
    I couldn't afford
    the Chelsea Hotel

    I'm lying here
    a broken man
    my youth is but
    a faraway land

    The path took a bend
    I'm near a dead-end
    the bottle's no longer
    my precious friend

    I've got nothing to lend
    nothing to spend
    except what I've saved
    to buy more blend

    The rent is due
    I hear him yell
    I'll end my day
    lying in a broken hotel

    Congrats, @rem :agreed:

    @theoriginalmonsterman, I took the liberty of tweaking the thread a bit so that the poem appears under @rem's badge. Hope you don't mind. :bigoops:

    Thanks, @Wreybies @LinnyV and @theoriginalmonsterman. I enjoyed reading every poem posted, and I hope to see you all in the next contest.

    I thought your poem was beautifully written, Linny, and look forward to going into this "poetry journey" with you. I take it from the other thread that this is just the beginning for you as well.

    Congratulations, @rem! Well, won – it was a tough prompt (how not to be bitter with a hotel for the broken?), and well done @LinnyV for getting your poetry muse on and putting one up to be judged!
