Las Vegas (the week after)

Part 2

Seated,

Face to face.

Travelled,

From place to place.

We find ourselves in a motel room

 

Tough choices

Muted inner voices

As life forces

And threatens our life force.

How did things go wrong from our hotel room?

 

Once a curious face

Now a serious face

You hand me choices

After calculating our losses

 

The world wasn't so receiving,

Forced us on a path of deceiving.

Heartache

After heartbreak.

 

Changed hair colour

Changing appearance

Said bye to the old life,

Making a dissapearance

 

They will miss us when we are gone.

We start this journey on our own

We will move to a place far and make a home

But first, we need a loan...

 

We entered the bank,

Just like we practiced.

All teary and emotional,

You showed them you sad face.

Happiness near,

We knew we had this.

But something went wrong,

You froze and panicked.

Time went slow,

TICK.....TOCK............TICK

You removed your gun
