Little White Dress

white dressThere is a

Little white dress

That waits in the

Closet of my heart.

It is the

Most beautiful dress

I have ever seen,

And it just happens

To be your size.

You know how

I feel about

The white dress.

It is a dress

Of little white lies.

At least that is

What I’ve learned

From previous experience.

The little white dress

Should only be worn

Once…

A most special occasion.

I can’t help but think

How gorgeous

You would look

Were you to wear it.

There are times

When I try to sleep

In the bed that’s

So empty since

You’ve been gone,

And I imagine you

Wearing this item

That I’ve mentioned.

In my thoughts,

You look like

An angel,

Perfection in white,

Love personified

And put on display.

Do you have

Any idea

Just how much

I think of that

Little white dress

And how happy

You’d make me

If you wore it

For me?

There is a

Little white dress

Being ignored

In the closet

Of my heart.

When are you

Going to claim it?

    Nice work, Austin, but I would shy away from using the word garment in a love poem. It triggers thoughts of the dry cleaner’s ticket.

    What is the real chance that the white dress will be put on? This piece makes me feel really sad.
