Bride and a Missing Groom

I have shamefully neglected this blog for a while. I simply got tired of my own voice and didn’t feel inclined to share my writing or my thoughts.

Recently I met up with one of my writer’s groups and, despite a painful and complicated theme of the evening, the discussions and writing was inspiring enough that I found myself wanting to share my writing again.

The theme of the night was Bride and Groom, picked by a young member of the group. Love, relationships and marriage are complicated, painful, joyful subjects that all of us have experience of and I don’t think anyone will escape untouched from. As you can tell from the title, I adapted the theme a bit to fit to my reality but as with everything else in life, try to find what works for you.


Bride and a Missing Groom

Princess dresses

Cinderella shoes

Sugary pinks and blues

A prince of course

But no thoughts further


Big wedding

All my friends

A church in a

Picturesque location

Still fairy tale dreaming


Simplicity is the key

Plain silvery dress

Escaping with the

man I love and

those most important


I’m nearing middle-age

The wedding not important

Neither is the ring

Someone to belong with

Someone to grow old with


Perhaps I want the ring after all

And someone to share life with

But I know perfectly well

that I can live happily without it
