Pre-Wedding Jitters: A Chat with Cupid

Pre-Wedding Jitters: A Chat with Cupid

When will he come, this knight?
This night.
Who will walk me down the aisle?
How will we help our guests who ail?
And what shall we call the band?
The Banned.
Who shall sing the hymn?
Why does he love me, my beau?
My bow.
What if, when saying our vows, my voice does break?
What if he sees me in my dress and says, "You've grown."
How will I know if he's slept with a guest?
With a guess.
What if my eyes flood like a broken dam?
How shall I spend my days?
What if he tries to oppress me?
Oh, press me!
What if, before honeymoon sex, he faints?
He feints.
What if, in his love for me, he is faux?
He is foe!
Will I be his heroine?
His heroin.
How long will last this marriage, ours?

    Holy crap! Thank you! I did feel quite clever! You should try this form--over in the form forum. There's a neat one over there, too. It's fun to play with homonyms.
