The Colour Of Love: Black

She remembered the past... those days of innocent love, the first spring of youth, those moments of passion and longing... the long days of waiting and wanting, and their fulfillment whenever time and fortune permitted... the dreams they had seen through each other's eyes, their life mapped out to perfection... the promises to dedicate their lives to their love, to be there for each other forever, no matter what.... yes, the memories came rushing back to her...

And with them came the pain of betrayal- the betrayal she had gone through ... the blood gushing out from old wounds... now healed, but certainly not forgotten... the guilt, the torture and the shock of being taken for a ride... the shamefulness of it all, her faith being stripped naked by the sheer callousness of the truth being revealed finally... to find out that all she'd believed in was a lie... that whom she had thought her strength was weak and broken... every vision shattered.. even as she watched him walk away with someone else through her tears...yes, the pain came flooding back...

She took a deep breath, but nothing could have prepared her for the final blow... as she saw proof of his betrayal splashed about and celebrated... the pictures of a smiling bride and a proud groom... it could have been her... it should have been her... and yet... it wasn't...she cursed him, and herself, for having given in so completely to him... yes, the tears flowed on...

As she looked into the deep abyss of loneliness... she felt her body go slack...
And as she fell deeper, beyond recall... the colour of her Love was Black.
