If I Found You First/Wedding Vows
unknown

“I searched for curtains that matched
 1
the lushiness of your lips on lazy, hot days
 2
of summer that we will never get back,
 3
but happily look forward to.
 4
 
 
Everything about you is beautifully vague,
 5
all awhile you captivate me with your silence
 6
and strong touch, balancing my cold
 7
with the warmth of patient breaths.
 8
 
 
Thank the heavens I found you first,
 9
because I never had time to have my heart broken.
 10
While lying in your arms is never a permanent,
 11
I still consider you my rock.”
 12
 
 
Someone accidently shook the pew,
 13
and suddenly my eyes watched you
 14
walk down your aisle from my aisle,
 15
in a House-o-God.
 16
 
 
I can only imagine these things
 17
because in-fact I did not find you first,
 18
and that miniscule flaw in timing made all the difference.
 19
And here I am, sobbing at a wedding
 20
for all the wrong reasons.
