writer's island prompt and easy street prompt

stranded
waiting desperately for him
she thought of how outrageous
it had been, the whole ceremony
from the beginning was doomed.
upon completion of their vows
he left her standing there, alone.
she couldn't believe her luck to
find the one person she could
share her life with, only to find
out he was in love with another.
they left together, as the crowd
watched in wonder at her lovely
tear stained dress. alas she would
leave alone in a taxi headed nowhere.

the picture is from easy street prompts and the writers island prompt was completion and outrageous.

Sad, but maybe inevitable in the circumstances.

Very sad but she was a bigger person she left letting people think that they were together and in reality they parted at the door.

I like this, it's like a tale told in poetry, it's sad but at least she found out now instead of later when things could get worse

oh, how terribly sad! so descriptive, so visual....you've managed to capture the feel of a broken heart to perfection.
