Betrothed To Betrayal - Poem by Armistead Lindsey

In an ivory gown, I waltz,
To meet my maker,
Or face my ultimate breaker.
In the eyes of all those I trust,
I see a conspiring plan,
To share, universally, the feelings,
In their new related form,
That originally came from my heart.
I vow to be there,
In sickness and in health,
And betroth myself to life
Imprisonment by betrayal,
Regardless of my feelings,
Without notice of my honesty.
I marry myself to be hated,
Suspected by my spouse,
Harmed by my home-bird,
Betrothed to my betrayal.
