The Broken Vow

The Broken Vow

A Poem by Jessalynn
"

Poem about a newlywed woman who's spouse broke thier marital vows and was unfaithful..

"
To have and to hold
Or so I was told
The desecration of a vow
That lays broken now

Something borrowed?
Something blue?

I guess I was old 
And she was new

You said together forever
Our love would never severe
It's my fault really, it's true
My foolish heart said "I do."

Thank you for reading hopfully i'll have something new posted soon :)
This is direct, contained, kind of bare bones that lays bare the breaking of a most sacred oath. It hit me with it being somewhat unadorned but eloquent all the same
I think very nicely done. A good write.
