Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Shades of Grey
 
She looked out on the dull world
The clouds full of rain, grey and darker grey
The white streaks like lightening
Or as she thought like the grey,

Her hair is showing in strands
Feeling slow and sore her urge
Flowing in waves like ash on the wind
Drives out into the pouring rain

The walk is short ,cold and wet
Rain smelling like wet socks as it bounces
Of the hot cracked pavement
Bits of fresh air wisp in on the breeze

As the walk slowly rejuvenates her
A small dark door beckons
The neon sign,like those from her past
Old, dull, and barely working

Overcoming the fear ,listening
The music beckons, like an old friend
Stepping into the dark crowded room
Smoke choking her as it swirls around

The chair in the corner
Inviting ,pulling the tears close
Country song on the juke box
A tear in my beer,echoing her feelings

Ordering a coffee that looks
Older and smokier than this place
Yet somewhere inside it creeps
The simple joy of ambience

Memories slipping in shades of grey
Of dancing her nights away
Laughing with her sister and friends
The sounds of old country a balm to her soul

The Gambler Plays now as they
Begin to set up for the band
How has she never seen this place
Nondescript door maybe

Everyone here looks young
The costumes variations of the years
Gone by withered, and faded
Looking as dull and her jeans

Not noticing the change of customers
She sits dreaming of past fun
Times shared with laughter
Smiles shared,all dissipated now

The lonely thoughts begin to fade
In a swirl of smoke and noise
The dull lonely ache leaves
Wondering who the band will be

Here grey memories fade
When through the door
Burst young people in
Black and white, grey

Layers and raggedy in style
Then the band arrives on stage
Wearing neon colours and hair
She leaves as the screaming starts

Watching her elusive dreams
Go up in smoke like the mist and clouds
The dull lonely ache back in her heart
She walks on into the rainy day
