I thought it love.

by Claire Chambers

The day was warm
The month was May
Tears fell on my wedding day
The choice was mine
I could have run
Another suitor would have come
And rescued me
From a life of drudge
Yet who am I to bear a grudge
Against myself
For roads not taken
I thought it love, I was mistaken.
