my love is not grey

my love is not grey.

it’s red.

it bleeds my blood but not

my blood for I do not own who I am.

Still, my love is for you

my body is yours

not to destroy but

to hold, cherish, and caress.

I have given you the gift of me

as you have done…but ultimately

we answer to God

so let the world see

that love is not grey, not somewhere between, undefined, promised only conditionally

no, love is red because it bleeds

sacrificially
