Something Happy

I’d like to go for a drive
just me and you
we wouldn’t even have to say anything
just be there together, no longer lonely
It would be lovely
we could just turn on the radio
you driving, me looking out the window
looking at the trees, and the lights
they flash as they dart past us
“Hello” I think, I don’t say it out loud
I’m not foolish.
I look at you, profile-view of course
your eyes are on the road, not noticing
“good driver” I think and don’t say
I start to not recognize the environment
I’m puzzled and confused
I ask if we’re lost
you smile, eyes still on the road
we aren’t lost at all, you say
Your eyelashes seem to flutter a little
they sometimes do that when you talk
I’ve noticed.
I awake, somehow I managed to have fallen asleep
and you’re looking at me.
We aren’t in the car
we’re on a beach.
You must’ve seen the confusion on my face
because you bent down and kissed me
right on my neck, right where you know how good it feels.
You smell sweet
I’m still wondering why we’re here
you know that, don’t you.
You grab a Bartles and James
we like to drink them together.
You kiss me a second time
on the lips, you taste like peppermints
the kind you get from IHOP, of course.
You drive me there Sundays for breakfast
and you steal all the mints “for later”
I now know when later is.
I giggle thinking about this
you laugh too, maybe we’re laughing about the same thing.
You tousle my hair and take my hand
and we lay back on the sand.
You place a hand on my stomach
I look at your hand, then your face
then we kiss most passionately,
I catch your hand wandering
but I don’t mind, because we’re having a moment.
I blow a little sand off your cheek
before I kiss it
You whisper something in French
it’s dirty and I smile
because you just look so amazing tonight.
