U is for U

I dreamt of U again

The second time this month

U were wearing a flowing white wedding gown

Barefoot, long hair cascading

U were running

U were coming down the stairs

I know who U were

U were Maria Clara

U were supposed to get married

But the groom didn’t turn up

He was on his way to the church

He was captured by the Spanish Civil Guards

They accused him of rebellion

And sentenced to be hanged

U went to see him in prison

But U were denied of that right

U went berserk

U tried to kill the guard

The guard shot U

That was tragic

    What a tragedy, but sometimes they are good for a change of pace. I like how you utilized today’s letter. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    That is tragic. I googled Maria Clara only after reading your poem today…I believe it’s a fictional character? Yet a strong and painful depiction

    Dropping by from a to z “The Pensive”
