It has been said that red is the color of love
The color of fire
The color of blood.
What, then, is the color of black?
Black is the color of hatred
The color of darkness, of shadows
The color of death
Black is all of those caused by red
A love lost to hatred in the fires of a forbidden
Fire surrounds us. Shadows on my face. On yours.
The hatred of my love, and love of my
Hatred. Burns you.
Your blood mingles with
The Red of your Hair. Illustrious. Beautiful.
Red is beautiful.
Black is deceptively so.
Our blood. Your death.
My darkness. Forever.
