Gothic Bride - Poem by Justin Gildow

Dressed up in a worn white dress
Tied and fitted right
Just for you
Your long silky hair falls down your
shoulders and back
Your eyeshadow completely covers
your eyelids
Though I can see your eyes
Some of your eyeshadow even drips
down your cheeks
Your head and face is covered by a white
And in your hands is a bouquet of assorted

You're so beautiful
And it's even more wonderful to know that we
both love each other so

Across the landscapes we walk
Taking in the sights of the bare trees
Seeing them removed of their leaves
The grass is completely gone
And nightingales are singinig their romantic

Reaching the river
With a jeweled hand
You reach into the river
Just to feel nature's magic
You tell me to reach into the river and to feel
nature's magic as well

After journeying across the many landscapes
We decide to finally become husband and wife
So that love won't hurt us
Or cut us like a knife

So we have our own private ceremony
Complete with a priest in front of us
And we marry
Only time will tell of all the many things
we'll have to carry

To symbolize what's just happened
We each are given a goblet
Filled with cherry wine
Looking into your eyes
Not that you've taken off your veil
We each take a drink from our goblets
And we lean in to kiss
As well as breathe each other in

In the end
I love you
My gothic bride
