It’s a funny story.
funny is subjective.
I’m going to say it’s funny so I can cover up an insecurity of mine,
for if I say it’s me,
you might think I’m weird.
here’s an invitation.
I urge you to laugh at me anyway,
but you’ll have my consent,
because after all,
it is a funny story:
I don’t want to do it.
It strangles me to think about responsibility that’s so immense,
for I’m not only marrying a guy,
I’m marrying his whole family,
I’m marrying his mom,
and wherever his surname might be,
I’m tying myself to a sinking boat,
and I’m the floatie,
and the thought of having no one as my anchor,
that terrifies me.
My life goal transforming from being a writer,
to a cook,
to dress in not my favourite colour,
for that’s not how brides look,
to be the perfect woman,
to abide by the rules of an unwritten book,
you’re finally hooked.
Oh they treat me like a princess,
when she was a maid,
and we don’t believe in small talk,
we rip off the bandaid,
when scars are on the inside,
it gets harder for them to fade,
where my parents are my refuge but even they cannot aid,
my head hurts,
delicate hair twisted,
in a too-tight braid.
it’s kind of a funny story,
because some fears can’t be extracted,
even by a raid…
and you couldn’t pay me,
to learn how to tie a braid.
