you know, standing there in that dress,
sweat collecting in little pools in my bra,
i felt beautiful.
and the makeup and the smiles covered up so much
i wasn't about to ruin this for the lucky bride.
so i smiled at them, and even talked a little
when they asked me questions.
i kept it together.
but standing there in the shade, all i wanted was out.
out of the car,
out of the shoes,
out of the dress,
and out of my skin.

Life is chaotic yet beautiful, fire and ice, love and hate.

This is gorgeous and so relatable to me, the narrator and/or you, seems so uncomfortable and almost a feeling of.. anxiety. I love it, so real.
