A  man smiling at his wife’s face  after marriage
Looking  sweatiness inwardly and outwardly confused  in the reception hall
Stopping  to dance with his bride  and refuses to bend his waist; 
Nobody notice his coldness except the newly wedded  wife
Honey, why do you wants  to disgrace me in my happiest day? 
Losing his hands off the Bride, moving hastily, with one side neck bends back
God, help me. I can’t  tell this to anyone; Who cares about what am going through.
My heartbeat  increases, blood dropping  inside my heart, eyes of acquaintance staring ; 
To understand the music of my  emotion as cold descended on me like bees. 

 You do understand 
That my heart is about falling out my chest.
 Friends and families, busily eating, drinking, shouting  
 Throwing themselves on each other; waving tails like a happy dog 
Believing that I am happy seeing them around;
Yes! Happy. But who know  the next news after  reception hall? Except me.
Bridesmaid, holding my hands in dancing and consolation ; 
 To waiting my groom to re-surface again.
Beckoning  on the  wind for hope; the wind  stops blowing.
Suddenly, she saw  best friend leeching  round her groom's body, crawling, twisting like  two waves.
Hands of warmness , spiral out impulses of  feelings, romantics, lips-to-lips
As the light went off in the reception hall, gross darkness whispers, 
 My heart jumped out of me; looking around, helpless faces in the dark screamed  
I know glimpse of my spotless face wouldn’t let you be;  even at the wedding altar.  
Your eye’s colour  turned me from dancing with my bride
Just to say goodbye with a gift of  last kiss; softening  your charming skin between my fingers; will holds my weakling lips with ignition.

Visiting my useful moment; I saw my bride’s eyes raining waters un-stopping .
Never mind my cheaply and childish slippery  off your hands
I know you are mine; created for me and given  as gift when I was lonely.
 Looking into my side; what do you see? I saw the Place where I  came out from during creation.
You are the  bone of my bones; as precious as my life, so you are 
I will  treasure  you till death do us apart 
The flowing streams of your beauties; runs into me like morning waters that  runs  into the fish body.  
In truth, perfect eggs of emotion are hatch into  home of understanding.
In you; my days be long.
