Her failure
was her own to bear
but instead it became the fear
of those who burdened her
with the weight
of being their idea of liberation

I could see those colours
on her face
red, blue and black
all of the same tone
Colours that were
there to stay
underneath that skin
to remind her
that there was no one left to blame
and no dreams to rely on
