Sick with regret, you sputter out.
Unsaid words freeze on your lips
As she stalks away from your bedside.
Her lily skin and lightning eyes,
An aloof gaze that chills the spine,
As she turns and glares over glasses.
Rosebud lips speak cold words
You feel inside like you’ve been cursed.
Then her stance softens and she returns.
Kneeling now her face inches away,
You notice for the first time
The tears you have made her spill.
“I love you still, even if they do not.”
Her words are gentle and your resolve crumbles
As you promise to recover from this depression.
Rosebud lips crack a smile
That reaches lightning eyes, flushes lily skin
Her hand rests gently on your shoulder thin.
“I promised first,” her words begin
“For better or worse. With all of my love,
Until death do us part as it is cursed.
Fear not the troubles to come,
We’ve seen many before and our love
Will help us battle this one.”
Lightning eyes, quick to gauge,
All your sorrow, all your pain
An ocean of strength when you have none.

- Description: Something that came to me after listening to a song called R&R by The Classic Crime. Viper_353 gave me a hand when I was stuck for stanza's 7 & 8....thankyou so much for the ideas!!! It lead my poem in a totally different direction from what I would normally go in.
