Wedding Night

What if on the night before
Ancient love rapped upon your door

And dispelled his devotion true
And bade to make away with you

Before the rising dawn of day
He took your hand and dared you stay

For tomorrow takes you to a place
Where vows affront anothers face

Then the deed will be complete
And spirit spilled upon tainted sheet

For your heart was stolen long ago
By the one whose face now shows

And in his eyes a piece of you
Lies in wait for answers due

Will you have the courage dear
To sever ties and quell your fear

Or relinquish hope, save reputation
Convince your soul through contemplation

That true love can be formed once more
And dismiss the soul that rapped your door

Wow! That's incredibly good! And I KNOW both faces! I cannot even begin to know my answer or my inner turmoil had that ancient face shown up on the night before I vowed my "til death do us part" to the face that I was engaged to. Tis a beautifully described wonder that you so perfectly painted here!
