“The Hesitant Fiancee” Ekphrastic Poem

You envy being young, 

where you were oblivious to the reality

 of what used to be  a future dream


Comfort does not soothe you

The praises, the congrats, the concept

They seem almost cruel


It is not your wedding, or your marriage

He will not be your husband,

Not the way you will be his wife


You are the hesitant fiancee

Soon to be the reluctant wife.
