One Night Stand
The ghost smell of stale cigarettes linger in the air,
shallow intentions and false assumptions follow.
A collaboration of insecurities and repressed memories
all kept together in a tight dress.
Beautifully seductive outer appearance
cloaked over emotional scars and untold secrets.
Hoping the drink will be a remedy for her pain,
she ends another night with alcohol induced impulses
and the love of a stranger.
