• Lead me down
    This road of red
    Adorned in fallen flowers.
    [An item of spectation
    A sainted abomination]
    In a world of white
    That blinds my sight
    As memories grow sour.

    Simple sounds
    Songs of love and laughter.
    [A gesture of contempt
    A crime now exempt]
    Dreams expelled =
    A life unquelled
    No happily ever after.

    Exchange of hands
    Exchange of vows
    For better or for worse.
    [A critical observation
    A force-fed conversation]
    As a veil is raised
    I pray for the days
    Of this arrangement to reverse.
