Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart. ~ William Wordsworth
Very apt description. I like the style you used.

I like it to, especially the 'minus' part!
Thank you so much Garbiella
Degrading the color to match the dullness of lost love is perfect.
Thank you so much Debbie for sharing such warm thoughts
Oooo, Ebullience, nicely done! I too loved the contrast of reds.
Thank you. I was wondering if it would come across.
Wow. Nice post.
Thank you for encouraging
I like how you distilled the red color to the washed-out color that most can relate to.
Thank you so much Janna. I really appreciate your support
love lost is a brick cake. perfect
I am glad the comparison works :) thank you so much
An original and well done work, Ruby. Not only is the brink leeching colour in the sun, it's hardening against feeling any more pain. Good use of the prompt and I'm glad you took it a step further too. :)))
Thank you so much Jo-Anne. It is so good to hear such refined and clear thoughts on what I wrote. I am really glad to hear from you.
That's a great observation Jo-Anne made above about the brick hardening against more pain. That's very true, and I think it's one of the things that makes your poem hit so hard, that and the deconstructing of red from its richest down to its flattest hue.
Thank you so much Kallan. I am really honored to hear such appreciation and encouragement.
Desiccated - that's how a broken heart can feel, when it's not pouring blood with pain. I loved this - we each have our own take on heartbreak.
Thank you Freya. It is good to hear your version and it fits in so well

Thank you Kelly. I wish I could answer your question though. I guess it is like a contingency situation.
