The plastic vow

Waking up next to you is not what I had in mind
I know your inlove
but I wish we could rewind.
A vow was made
obligation overplayed 
why did I proceed
because in marriage I don't believe.
white satin, decadent cake
100 guests watched by the lake.
I tried my best to put on a smile
with the groom not realizing he was in denial.
This special day is such a waste
because when years go by it'll be replaced.
I didn't want to hurt anyone
I wasn't looking out for me
I hoped i'd eventually fall for you
and build our family tree.
I care for you but I have to walk away
because I know in the end
it would be me who would betray.

    Dear Erin I'll reiterate David's and Mandy's sentiments you are surely a brave girl.
