Faded Bride

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


Bride gone
