Hotel on the Corner of Bitter & Sweet

by Carol Grant

You know the one, it stands tall, regal,
looking to some, grand, to others ominous, dark,

Pick a room , any room , big, small, shadowy, light
it won't really matter they will all end in the same place;

I know what your thinking, right, same place,
it can't be the same place, bitter, sweet

The hotel will tell you it can, in no uncertain words,
or actions, yes, I did say actions or words;

Whisper here, whisper there, moving, from there to here
touch on your arm, whisper so close you can feel it,

Taste it on your breath, bitter, caressing your nightmare,
causing you to shiver, though very sweet in gesture;

So come on in, the hotel awaits, to show you a sweet time or
bitter time, it welcomes people from all walks of life,

The time your shown will be the hotel's choice,
bitter, sweet, it awaits silently, serenely.

All of this I have spoken about of course you won't know,
you will be expecting a grand stay, carefree , full of fun

Oh, you won't be disappointed, in the beginning,
when it is daytime and there is laughter in the air....
