A Pantsuit Bride on her Second Try

“Did he put his hands on you?”
I found that question so confusing
Yes, he put his hands on me
every day. I was his fiancee
I said nothing. They amended
“did he put his hands on you in anger?”
No, I thought, in hatred, maybe,
yes,
i thought, he was enraged…
maybe it was a bad reaction to the cocaine?

“What happened?” Nothing.
I don’t know what happened
he attributed it to stress
One day I came home
and he wasn’t the same man.
I asked them questions. “One day
do you think, I can try again?”
They said, “If you ever have
another wedding-don’t wear white.
Wear some off shade,
a darker cream or maybe beige.”
