a picture of too much trust
& red.

that's basically it.

a picture of hope and love and lust.

she had tears streaming down her face
&& he violated her and he hurt her badbadbadly
(she still reeks of his cologne and smoke)

he loved her.

she was dreaming of the white wedding cake
but if she would have had it he would be choking her with it
(it was supposed to be sweet)

'to have and to hold,' they say.
but he could not have her.

(nor would she have him hold her, so)

he could only hold her down.
