sloppy honeymoon kisses
smearing red lipstick
against white lace
in unexplored places
because honey,
this bride is a
good old fashioned
christian young lady

somewhere sits a couple
of leftover wedding guests
alcohol miraculously fresh
on their breath
and they're laughing
like nothing is wrong
besides the fact
that they're both so
pathetically lonely

mascara is trailing down
the cheek of a bridesmaid
who's so green with envy
she feels it curled up
inside her like a well-fed animal
and she does nothing but
bite her chapped bottom lip
and imagine the groom
with his hands on her body
right now

they're sweeping at this time of night
cleaning up the party debris
stained linen and trampled streamers
and confetti caked into cracks in the floor
the janitor sighs heavily
as he loads his arms with
baby's breath that bow their heads
and piles of white, wilted petals
that he dumps in the trash

and as they hit the crinkled black plastic
that lines the garbage among cake crumbs
and discarded drinks,
bride and groom lean into each other
exhaling each other's names
and go limp
I enjoyed writing this one so much! I hope you like this (if you do, please favorite this poem or drop me a comment. I love your feedback)!

I'm not sure what to think of this one. I'm torn between two perspectives. Curse you good poetry! Messing with my mind! Though I suppose that just means you did a brilliant job. :)

Its very sweet and it flows well. Maybe depends on how you interpret the kissing I guess.
