Brief Encounter

I met her on the internet
In an instant I was smitten
I threw all caution to the wind
Though I had been once-bitten

Her long blonde hair and big blue eyes
Just stole my heart away
I printed off her photograph
To keep it near all day

I feared she was too good for me
So lied about my age
The photo that I posted
Was an actor from the stage

I said I was an architect
Designing mighty bridges
Although I worked for Comet
In the warehouse, moving fridges

We finally arranged to meet
I’d fooled her, to my shame
But sadly didn’t realize
That she had done the same

So when we met, that fateful night
It wasn’t us at all
It wasn’t the start of something big
Just the end of something small
