I remember my
dress
close-fitting and
black
imprisoning my
body
like shrink wrap
I remember my
hair
long and dark
brown
with a narrow
band of
velvet
tight over my
frown


I remember that day
we made our
plans
and with promises like
a welding torch
you said you would
never desert
me
your eyes two blotches of
sealing wax
revealing
nothing.


 

now I am
yours
forever;
and
from where you
cut
your name
from my neck to my
sleeve
I bleed red
drops
whenever you
leave
