Romance and Musings

Walking down in my cold feet


My hands were shivering

the whole idea about walking down to face everyone was killing

yet there was no escape

my tummy rumbled

I kept my eyes shut

wished to be deaf and blind

so that none could be seen or heard

for a split second, the whole world around me stood still

I could hear no words

I could hear nothing

All was just blank for few seconds

there they came to take me away from my home

I walked down all decked up

I felt all the eyes looking up to me

the heart rate was faster than I could count the beats

I felt I might just break the hand chain and run away

but it was near impossible

I gathered up all my courage and looked up

there I see all my family

yes!! It is my wedding

the day I should be happier and smiling

yet am in dismay

I decided to smile for my family

the ones who decided to let me off to another family

As I slowly ascended the steps where my groom was waiting

I gathered all my courage to lean forward to take the huge step

The marriage- A big step

I accepted the change and smiled to the whole crowd right in front of me

soliciting everyone around me that “AM A HAPPY BRIDE”.
