Red is the colour that pierces the atmosphere around you, but it’s not the colour you see when they leave.

In many circumstances the departure of a lover is foreseeable
be it from the absence of their physical presence,
the lack of mutual efforts
or the dull tone to their “I love you too’s”.

In most cases we like to cast off these small jesters to link with other emotions such as stress and tiredness,
rather than the dreaded disinterest that we pray it not be
Knowing damn well that you don’t remember the last time they told you full detail about their day
What it felt like to wake up to good morning messages
Or forgiving the fact that they forgot your birthday.

Nevertheless it hurts anyway.
