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 and 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
