Poem #7; Always

There she stands, in front of me
The most beautiful woman, I’ve ever seen.

“Do you take her as your lawful wife,
To have and to hold, from this day forward…”

The words start to sound blurry
The person in front of me now…
Is not a person anymore.
I see a silhouette.

“You are not only yours, you are mine, too”, she says from a thousand miles away,
The phone call;
My only means of life support.

I close my eyes,
The weakness sinking in,
Drowning me;
I marvel at my incapability
To swim out of this pool of dreadful emptiness.

“I love you, so much”,
Her anxiety fails to stay hidden behind those words.

I clench the rusted blade,
Smiling at myself, realising
The real demon of my destruction is me.

Droplets of crimson…
Who knew they’d make a beautiful pattern?
Who knew that pain could feel so beautiful?

“…For better or for worse,
For richer or for poorer,…”

I look down at my hand.
Those scars that never faded.
A reminder of my old friend, my enemy.

I look back up,
Into her eyes.

I know she knows what I’m thinking.

She gives me the warmest smile
Her dark orbs probing me gently.

“…In sickness and in health,
To love and cherish till death do you apart?”

I close my eyes and see the most beautiful sight,
Her brilliant smile,
The dancing amusement in her, deep dark eyes.

I smile again;
As I open my eyes.
I smile again, not from the pain
I smile from the cure of my pain.

There she stands, in front of me
The most beautiful woman, I’ve ever seen.
My rock.
My anchor.

“Not even death can do us apart”, I tell her.

“In sickness and in health,
To love and cherish, till eternity”,
I hold her hand carefully;

“I do.”
