For Three Word Wednesday where the given words are raspy, shifty and painful.
Tom Waits’ raspy voice fills the empty room. We often listened to him. Now, all that remains is a shabby picture of you. I placed it in a frame and fixed it to the wall. I don’t want to lose it. Losing you was painful enough.
I’m gonna love you till the wheels come off he growled.
I sat in this corner all night. And now as the sun comes you are bathed in its golden glow.
It was my own fault. Until now, I didn't realise how much I loved you; needed you. Devious, shifty, dishonest. I got what I deserved.
The song ended hours ago. All I hear is the click-click of the needle as the disc spins round. I lift the arm and place it back to the beginning.
I love you baby and I always will, ever since I put your picture in a frame.
