Victoria, 2012

we met in a bar
when I was drunk
and you hated me
despite my attempts to impress
you with money and fruity cocktails

weeks later
we met in a club
when you were drunk
and we danced to music
neither of us liked until

you kissed me
but I pulled away first
just to be an asshole

then you moved away
but when we met again
months later
in the same club, same dance
you said you loved me
and I said it back because I thought
it would increase the chances of us
having sex
in the staff bathroom
and it did

but I should have never said it
because when I spent all my money
on a plane ticket
to see you
instead of fruity cocktails
you told me goodbye
and I cried
in the airport
that night
