Faded (In Senryu)

i once was colour
spilling onto a palette,
painting blank canvas

i once was dark ink –
crisp cursive lines on the page –
vivid poetry

now i am faded –
a series of dull smudges
strewn across your (he)art

*For a friend going though relationship woes

  1. I can relate to this because relationship woes are something all of us go through at some point or the other. I really like the closing verse, and particularly the last line, with the parenthesis making up a clever allusion. Well done!
