~radiant red~

one luscious, blushed

red apple

cradles in her palm.

her smile is broken

by chattering teeth,

the breeze that bites both of

their naked hands.

her hopeful emerald eyes

are cheated by the gray sky.

her elevated high

created with no wings to fly.

his mouth is mute.

the angel he knows not to pollute

with poison of jaded hope

always he is dizzy on the tightrope.

she steals his hand.

a gasp slams into his diaphragm.

from radiant red,

the apple drops.

now beaten black

it begins to rot.
