Not with rain - with tears
Crying in your wedding dress
Tearing your hair out

Screaming your lungs out

You wore that dress for 16 hours
You wore it too long
You wore it when you arrived
And you wore it when you woke up

She turns to face the house
And in the air
A thousand silent screams rings out

Never speak of endings
