The wedding

The wedding

A Poem by Pretty_as_a_Poet
"

Not what your expecting...

"
The bride walks down the aisle, her dress a creamy white,
Petals fly the groom smiles it's such a beautiful sight,
But one woman sits in the pew, alone, and a tear slips from her eye,
Thinking about her past out of despair she starts to cry,
She and the groom were the closest of friends, but in her heart she wanted more,
And when the groom announced he was to wed, into pieces her heart tore,
Forever she had loved him so, but for years she never knew,
That all the while that she loved him, he also loved her too,
But now he's gone, married away, she'll never have him now,
If only she said that she loved him, If only she knew how
She knows she should be happy for him, he found his Mrs. Right,
But the tears keep falling from her eyes so she closes her eyes tight,
She can't bear to see the kiss that will steal what should be hers,
And when it's time to make a toast she just can't find the words,
Now every night she lays in bed and cries herself to sleep,
Because every time she thinks of him she just can't help but weep

Dear Emily

I fear in the brief time I have been on this website (about a week) and reviewed others writing, I may have grown a reputation for reviews which are anything but concise and jam-packed with careful thought and apparently erudite words.

Thing is I love reading others writing. It makes me think; inspires me.

In your case I am going to make an exception.

Your poem blew me away!

Beautifully executed and full of meaning that I hope will, but I believe should, move every reader perhaps even to tears.

In all sincerity, with my thanks and my warmest regards

James

My pleasure.
2nd Prize in my competition 'Knock my socks off!'
A touching poem, full of emotion. I was looking for poems that would catch my eye on first red, and yours did exactly that. The first two lines paint a warm atmosphere, and then it all changes. The way you have this piece written, it is easy for the reader to feel the pain of the woman who has just lost her chances with the one she really loved. This poem tells a tale that features in many popular, annoying films, but this piece of writing was far more heart felt and enjoyable than any of those stupid films.
A great write, well done. :)

imagery amazing...I am sucker for gowns
content is so expressive
was not quite sure what to expect with the title so the twist kept my full attention
thank you for sharing

Posted 6 Years Ago


yes, this shows much...think the first line meant to be "his bride"

but yes...i have been to weddings and felt this actually...

glad to be where i am now, in the relationship i am in....but along the way...there were those what ifs...

especially one...when i thought...that might have and should have been me.
