I watched her walk down the isle
Fragile figure, weakened by the weekends she spend
Kissing different frogs till her lips are pale and dry
The colored lipsticks are almost peeling off like the paints on an old building
The collared padre asking her if she does reminds her of the pains
That she is so much trying to hide
The tears that she is so much trying to fight
The love that she is so much trying to find
All wrapped up in one broken groom
She has swept all corners of the nation like a borrowed broom
She has been hired and fired, used and abused, amused and reduced
To nothing
All she wanted was tall, dark and handsome money
But all she needed was a good man
What she wanted clouded the judgment of what she needed
That’s why there is no wise advice that she heeded
Right now all those regrets are deeply rooted and hidden
Killing her slowly and silently without arms
The padre asked again
She looked up into the eyes of a perfect stranger and saw love
Felt guilt and said…I don’t
Silence swept the auditorium like an evil spirit
Too many questions ran through the minds of the congregation
Nobody spoke, not a word was uttered
But there was a buzz of conversations running through the minds of those present as they looked at each other
The unspoken hate
Needed no support with the spoken words
You could see from their faces 
The air was so tense like a ticking time bomb that was threatening to go off at a slightest provocation
If only to serve as a consolation she continued…I don’t deserve you
You have shown me love that no one ever deed
But as much as that’s all I ever needed
I am too broken for you, I…sshhhhh
He said, say not another word, you will be breaking my heart for nothing
Nobody is perfect, but I see perfect in your imperfections 
Just hold my hand and I will do the rest
You have been through a lot I know and that’s why you need to rest
Let me be your home, let me protect you from the storm
Going down on a knee, he posed the million dollar question
And drove the point home
