White, beaded, ruffled gown

Black tux with tails

Dancing ‘round and ‘round

Under a canopy of trees

~

The moon lighting

Stars casting a glow

On the forest floor

~

No burdens, no problems

Love — love surrounding

~

Your arms tightly around me

Your breath in my ear

Your lips upon mine

~

Fading, shadows, darkness

Whispering, judging

Eyes staring

~

Passion, love lost

Sadness, frustration

Alone

Bride gone
