I'm getting married
In a matter of days
But I feel just numb

There's nothing I sense
I get hints from others'
Reaction to the news

Most say she's pretty
And I should exercise
Get in shape and shop

But I feel so detached
As if it's all happening
Around me, not within

There's but genuine liking
For the one I'm betrothed
Sadly that's as far it goes

But then isn't bonding
Like a burning flame
Ours is a mild candle

I'd known fires before
But so uncontrollable
Like a wild forest fire

Within brief moments
So much got burnt out
That nothing remained

But it has cleared
The ground fully
To sow saplings

New resilient species
Which will hopefully
Blossom again soon
