California Wedding

We said “I do” to everything because we were heavily influenced by sunlight and Palm trees. Made out in the parking lot of an In- N-Out because of boredom. We got married in a Whole Foods. Nah we didn’t, cause we couldn’t afford it. But it felt that way because our love was organic.

  
Getting a piece of you was peace of mind 

You remind me not to panic.

Falling for me you never planned it. It was like iPhone updates, you just kept saying “remind me later”. Ink running through my veins like tattoos of the sane but I never penned it. Child of blood diamond laborers I viewed you as a pendent. My soul was touched by the beams that came from street lights. I got the reach like Dhalsim in Street Fights. Your spirit is that of Saturday morning cartoons that came on in the 90’s. Wake up early lost in our fantasies but you said no matter how big the festival crowd you would find me. No matter the lifetime she would be the one who broke my heart or completed me. All these dancing lights like lullabies from my mothers favorite melody. You and I are harmony. The world viewed me as a threat but you never saw the harm in me.

Mothers favorite melody.

 You and I are harmony. The world viewed me as a threat but you never saw the harm in me. 

  

I just need someone that gets me… 

Like the wedding could be extravagant and have an open bar, but she still has a flask hiding in her dress and I got one tucked away in my tux. The mimosas are primary and our favorite meal is brunch. We went vegan for a month. We thought it was something to try. Just a touch of something new to help us get by. We like to do things that make the allure of this town seem real. She said she keeps me close cause I make her feel alive. Like tequila shots, I make her feel alive. I say I love you twice because I never get the crucial things right on the first try.

Allure seems real.

I say I love you twice because I never get the crucial things right on the first try. 

 

I just need someone that gets me…

I want a G-Wagon and for you to sit shotgun with a Caprisun. Fruitsnacks and your favorite playlist, tell me when the musics done.

This could be everything.

  

This fantasy could be in reach. We paid more for the rent because we wanted to live by the beach. No stones in this glass house. Please practice what you preach. Cleaning in the Spring. I got skeletons in my closet that want to be freed. Your closet is full of clothes, most of which you don’t need.

You always have nothing to wear…

Why don’t you ever have anything to wear?

Why now?

Why here?

How come I have this irrational fear?

Sunglasses on my memories to protect from the past glare.

You always told me your last nights dreams because you knew it was your happy thoughts kept away my nightmares.

I just need someone that gets me…

I was never one to care until you started talking to me in a way that made me want to hear your voice later in a day.

Sunset, Palm trees and different strains of medicated weed.

Avocado cost extra but we’re more worried about the important things.

All your jeans have those “I don’t care” rips

You are brutal in your honesty but I love to taste the truth on your lips, so there’s no regret when we kiss.

Overpriced drinks but if it’s underneath the right lights, then it’s worth every sip.

Wrong neighborhood and they ask Blood or Crip. Right place wrong time that’s the introduction to my existence. You were always dressed nicer than I. So to get your attention was an act of persistence. Let’s not get lost in the nice cars and all the fancy things. Remember to take our souls and not an Uber to all the important things.

Lust in the city and love by the beach.

  
I think we fell in love with the idea.

We fell in love with thinking that we belong here.

We fell in love with the concept that road trips don’t have to end.

We fell in love with kisses from the sun.

We fell in love with thoughts of California.

We fell in love with the possibilities.
