The Alter's Mistake - Poem by Lexy Sogl

Walking down the aisle
As far as the eye could tell
Sorrow rolling down her cheeks
wretchedly mistaken
as joy
Underneath her dress
Lay blotches of hurt
Baffling bruises
given to her

Instead of
her promise of happiness
She had no choice
But to believe
belief turned into hope
hope turned into begging
begging turned into bittersweet regret

she remembers that place
where her feelings
weren’t a displeasure
she screams
hoping, wishing, desperate
for someone
to look up
and take her
away from that home she built
away from what she had no control over
away from that alter where her mistake stood waiting for her
