my love is not grey.
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
