white dress
bold
high heels
butterflies
fluttering rapidly
(inside) her

posing for
(no one)
but
herself

artificial light
glowing on her
cheeks
back towards the
mirror
in a room
overflowing
with dresses
(carefully)
choosing the best
one

standing  on carpet
surrounded
by hardwood
voices
(chattering) behind the
cracked door

(eager)

to make that first
appearance
(importance)
in her
every step
every breath
every word
everything

jaws dropping
eyes widening
heart pounding
as she (anxiously) took
that first
step

this is the one


The author's comments:

I wrote this piece in my English class, it started out by discribing a pitcure and then turning it into a poem. It is about a girl picking out her wedding dress. I hope people can connect with how the girl feels and how she knows it is the one.
