The Night We Met


the night we met,
you kissed me first
I thought it was kinda cute

but I didn’t know,
what I know now

the night we met,
you dissolved my chasteness
I thought you were nice

but I didn’t know,
what I know now

the night we met,
I told myself
I’ll never kiss this man again

but I didn’t know
what I know now

the night we met
you broke a wine glass
I told myself : yikes

but I didn’t know
what I do now

the night we met
I imbibed the rules
of your permeable closet

but I didn’t think
what I think now

the night we met
you sparked a rosé-fuelled interlude
in your marital home

but I didn’t think
what I think now

today I know better
than to let
someone trapped
by designer sheets
in his own closet
get so smotheringly
close to me

today I know better ;
and I’ll love more
than I ever have
