Mourning In Red

on

I remember you told me I look beautiful in red, like a delicate rose. I remember that day when I sent you a picture in a red dress and you came 12 miles just to see me. I remember how happy you were when you asked me out for the first time and I came dressed in red. I wore the color of love when we first kissed and also when you married me. I am wearing the same color today as I look at my reflection in this pond and remember the day you left me alone and departedโ€ฆ

      Life is unpredictable, when we think we’ve achieved our happily ever after, it changes everything!

  4. Men say lots of things to women; the thing to watch is what they do. Good riddance, jerk! The only color you truly love is the shade of your own face.

      1. I read the poem again. I assumed the man left because he rejected the woman. The poem simply says that he departed and left her alone. He could have died? I donโ€™t know. I just immediately went to, โ€œwhat a jerk!โ€

        Yes by departed I meant died and his soul departed… But you brought a different aspect to the story which I am thankful for ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Hi Yamini

    Thanks for the follow(s) …and/or like(s)

    I just realised my days are determined and lead down paths from the feedback by my readers and followers around the world, like you. So thanks for the input.

    All your comments and feedback encourage (greatly), uplift and even inspire me to follow “this road less travelled”.

    I love my days “interacting with you’ guys and gals’ (and anything else in these PC * days-very)”
