Been Waiting Years

Ive been waiting for this day for years
To think that two brothers could bring me to tears
One that birthed me and his twin
Jerks of a common face, 
Would show no proof of disgrace

Your wedding a week after me
That family I will not see
When I'm walking down an isle
To the man I truly love
You'll be finishing up your details
With your 60 year old turtle dove

Sure they'll feel bad and send money as presents
Bad enough I can't see my father, 
I want his siblings' presence
Said you'd be there in the beginning
Blood runs thick I should've known
Blindly trusted you, my heart was thrown
I could keep crying about this but Ill look good in my dress
The regrets about this, too deep for you to ever address

    You have expressed yourself well with this difficult situation. I see titles of poems, and don't know what to expect. If I like the poem, but it's a message to the reader, it becomes much more difficult to comment, but you did a wonderful job.
