I was living in Manchester for a few months and one night in late October I was really depressed.

I took a lot of cocaine and went for a walk, along Oxford Rd, then down Hyde Rd, which became the A57 and then alongside the M67 if I remember.

Anyway, I got up onto the bridge opposite the MacDonald's and the Lidl, in the Denton area, and I just stood there leaning into the cold wet rainy wind.

Feeling everything, smelling everything, hearing everything.

The cars rushed passed, it was cold, I was high and feeling so fucking low.

After 15/20 minutes I dragged myself home, soaking wet, feeling like a failure.

When I woke up the next morning my uni notepad was open on the desk and I'd written "3:37am - cold motorway" as a title.

It stuck with me I guess. A month later I left Manchester and never returned.
