Search Party

Red dripped on the ground, bathing the white flowers, painting them anew.

The orange of their torches burnt holes in the night as they hunted.

Their yellow eyes pierced dreams, snuffing them out.

They trampled over the green as they searched for forbidden love.

They pulled at her arm, tearing her away from those blue eyes.

They bruised her hands with the cloth as they erased the glittering  purple from her fingernails.

glee. cackles. success! what next?

The next day, they found her crumpled sheets.

There was a rainbow in the sky.
