The Faded Body

The lover watched,

as the lifeless body hung,

upside down and fading into a deep,

dark, dull red

 

It used to be full of life,

imbued with a love greater than

itself, perhaps a burden too much

for it to bear

 

And one might argue,

that the presence remains,

even if the life is fading away,

dripping downwards to

a sea of red
