on being a bridesmaid (part II)...

You are a goddess. Standing there in that gorgeous spanish gown. The whole store envying you. Mothers and daughters and bridesmaids. She will make a lovely wife, they say.

You are a goddess, always to me. In your jeans. In your pajamas. With vomit in the corners of your mouth.

You are goddess, for leaving. He could never unleash you.

I am breathing sighs of relief with you. Together. Slowly exhaling this wedding. Together. Slowly inhaling all that lies ahead.
