Sorrow filled Rainbow

R is for red... Submitted by Megan (Award 126), age 20

R is for red
The blood that no longer runs through her veins
O is for Orange
The unnaturally brightly beautiful colour of her hair
Y is for Yellow
The prettiest of all silk surrounding her body
G is for Green
The deep shades irises out of which she can no longer see
B is for Blue
The airless life liquid which had stopped flowing from her heart
I is for Indigo
The bruises that colour her waxy skin
V is for Violet
The name of the flowers clasped in her hands as she is laid to rest
