Words spied, 

On your lips.

Cherished her, 

Sumptuous kiss.

Bouquet tossed,

Whirling — uncaught. 

Resides with, 

With what I spied, 

Imagined took place;

You said her name, 

She’s your wife. 

Matrimony for life? 

Remain —

On your side,

Of the revolving orb.

I’ll be —

Wrapped in letters, 

Jumbled words,

Creased pages;

Not lovers’

Forever gazes.

    Yeah it’s a bit complicated. She pictures the guy she’s always loved finding his perfect woman (who isn’t her) and in her mind sees herself spying on them getting married as she knows in the future he will find his perfect woman and do just that . In reality, it’s a bad daydream but she does not know or is connected to this guy she loves and still realizes he will marry someone who isn’t her so she buries herself in books ‘book boyfriends probably lol. Reality is too painful I guess 🙂
