Most people want to be the sun that brightens your day. I'd rather be the moon that shines down on you in your darkest hour.


She stood at the alter, tears falling from her face;
They rolled down her cheeks; falling on her dress and staining her pretty lace.
She looked down at the empty rows before her;
As her eyes once again began to blur.
He was gone along with her pride;
Left at the alter as the unwed bride.
Her satin white gloves lay on the ground;
And she wondered if his footsteps would ever be found.
She reached her hand up, and pulled the crown off her head;
And broke it in half for the words left unsaid.
She took a step in her perfect white shoes;
Because now she knew what she must choose.
Again she took that walk down the aisle;
On her face was no hint of a smile.
Her heart was now broken on the best day of her life;
She would never be called somebody’s wife.
Off of her body, she tore the white dress;
No one left for her to impress.
Out of its curls, her hair tumbled down;
And threw her bouquet with the rest of the gown.
She screamed out her lungs, for there were no words left to say;
All of her happiness was taken away.

Yikes. Intense. I feel bad for this woman. You have it described perfectly what someone somewhat might feel after being left at the alter.

Oh my goodness! That is all I can possibly find the words to say. This is so sad, and I read it, like, a million times! If you get the chance, may you please give me feedback on my article, "Is There Reason?" Much appreciated. Excellent work!

This is the essence of perfection. True words, true feeling. Words arranged in a series of faultless lines. I read, and while I read, there was a picture depicted in my head, of what your words brought to my mind, a clear and crisp picture, that none could have brought except your own true poem.
