An Abandoned Bride (Escaped Groom) - Poem by Anita Sharma

Left in fuchsia,
left awful,
never happen,

smiled and gazed,
waited until twilight,
never came, ,

left solo,
left naught,
left heartbroken,

no place to be found.
ran, barefoot and red,
eyes blurry with pain.

left me, escaped
passed strangers,
laughed,

cried,
gasped,
ignored.

no place to be found.
aloof In the dark.
a truant lover

bathed in wedding dress,
fling down empty bed,
streaks
down
my
cheek
abandonedat the altar, , , ,

    i have described it tony through my imagery..couple of years ago in my village it happened to a girl. i didnt quite understand the pain. but later i felt the pain in love..i would say warmth of my tears were more witnessed to that pain.at the sudden reminded me of that girl.and tried to explain it..my poems are most of the time autobiographical.. whatever i have felt of feeling is the base.......well thanks tony for reading and comments (Report) Reply
