The Wedding

He had brought me flowers.
roses. They were
darkest red.

Church bells tolled from behind
with golden sound;
bittersweet bittersweet.

He came to me, dressed in black;
in black with flowers
in his hand

roses. They were darkest red like
exotic dancers
adorned with crimson leaves.

A crowd was there;
people I knew
some were crying.

A man of God was there as
well. Reading from his book
of God. But

All I could see was him
dressed in black;
in black with flowers.

    Just need to point out that this poem is made to look nice and flowery but it's actually describing a funeral scene. It makes it all the more ironic and contrasting. this poem plays on the idea that elements of a wedding are also found in a funeral and can just as easily be interchanged
