By
Leatherette booth
and a sugar-stained smile
My blood feels chalky tonight
in this familiar place
with its smoke and glare
All my history comes flooding back
and my dinner partner inhales
Possibly this story will stay unsoiled
but for the record
I gave everything

You know it's a good poem when you can see and feel exactly what the writer wanted you to. Great job!
