when you dip her in the middle of the dance floor, it is the color of her dress,

when she whispers in your ears, it is the color of her lips,

when you make love, it is the trace you want her to leave all over your body,

when she places he palm over your heart it is the color that comes to the surface as her fingertips trail like a sentence that can never be finished,

when you see her in the bedroom with another, it is the color of your breath,

when you smash the vase in the hall, it is the color that threatens you to abandon the shattered pieces,

when you scream at the top of your lungs, it is the color that pierces the atmosphere,

when she hears you, it is the color of her pulse,

when you look in her eyes for the last time, it is the fading color of your heart falling to your knees,

it is not the color you see when she leaves.
