Little Red

I heard you fall in every breath you took

Unhitched and absolved, your hair fell different.


Your eyes were aglow with the excitement of promise


The boy in red


The red of autumn, crisp underfoot

the red that fell across your cheek

The red that tinged the opal of your eyes


A red that filled and overtook; 

leaving no semblance of what could've been


A red that burned  out all possibility 

Stilling the frame of our life


Red that at once - ended
