(taken Aug. 2014)

They call you lady luck
But there is room for doubt
At times you have a very un-lady-like way
Of running out
Your on this date with me
The pickin’s have been lush
And yet before the evening is over
You might give me the brush
You might forget your manners
You might refuse to stay
And so the best that I can do is pray
Luck be lady tonight

Last year was my first time vacationing in Vegas and the first time I met J. J and I were already acquainted online for about 2 years at that time. I was excited about finally meeting him after years of covertly messaging through an RPG which turned into texts and phone calls.

I won’t get into the drama that pursued during the trip which resulted in a loss of a friend, a strengthening of another friendship and me getting to meet what I thought was the man of my dreams.

I miss this little city of flashing lights, dry heat and being surrounded by a ring of earthy mountains. Since then, I have gone back twice after that getting more familiar with the city. At first, I thought it was obnoxious and cheesy. Slowly, I became mesmerized but not enough to convince myself to leave my ocean kingdom of San Diego. At least not yet. With J, I had plans to and I would’ve.

Maybe I left my heart in Las Vegas. And that’s okay.
