The Wedding


O marriage-bells, your clamor tells
Two weddings in one breath.
SHE marries whom her love compels:

    complex and astounding, but overall captivating. I love that this is short, but packed with depth! (Report) Reply

    Truly a much complicated composition as an institutional access called Wedding. Yet, characters are many within the emotional intelligence. Sometimes emerges the passion of penetration, sometimes deviating from the crude line of making -love. Death, undoubtedly the hero of all hankerings. Poet tries to establish with strong metaphor. And again, yet, a line touches me as a poem many times does the same........

    To wed a bride with bloody tears.

    It spells as the war begins for the past to snatch the beauty from the present.

    By our very births, we make vows down the aisles path

    In a weird amusing way, this was rather captivating. I like how he uses death and marriage. Together, they sound kinda fit for each other. This is good :) (Report) Reply

    That analogy of death as a marriage, is like a line of poem gold, in the mine tunnel of the poetry world. [far out] (Report) Reply

    A very well written poem. It conveys so vividly how much love has been displaced by one who did capture the prize. I am new to this site and this poem took much time and pain to come to fruition. (Report) Reply

    What a poem1 You can really plum the depths of his grief at losing the one he loves to another. The wedding viewed from a very different perspective. What passion. (Report) Reply

  • Bianca Diana (5/7/2006 7:30:00 PM)

    What lovely and morbid words, that they seem to flow along with your tears; mingled as both sorrow and beauty. A truly grand expression of heart. Thank you. (Report) Reply
