Excerpt

Swallowed By The Room

In a sex stained hotel room
With wrinkled, unchanged sheets
Nicotine painted walls
And roaches at her feet

The window's opened slightly
Letting in the sounds of fear
She can feel the mounds of pain
That the room left last year

And lying on the nightstand
Was her husband's silver spoon
Her whole life's dignity
Has been swallowed by the room

When she closes her eyes
She can still feel and see
The pain in his eyes
And a soul so empty

A tear rolls down her sunken cheek
As the needle pierces her vein
She knows nothing of forgiveness
All she's ever known is pain

And her soul's below the balcony
Where her love's bloody body lied
And the moment that she hit the ground
Along with him she died

She steps onto her deadly plank
Of hurt and quiet despair
With a cry or pain she's flying
Though for a year she's been there

With only angels watching
She comes down from her high
Two lost lovers in a hotel room
For eternity they cry.



Professional Reviews

TOPS
"Marylin Houle's songs of pain and sorrow will stay with you long after you have read her book.

Her poems of self-abuse, torment, and heartbreak will leave you speechless.

This very moving first collection of Marylin's exemplifies her potential for greater things to come."
