Somonka: off reds by Vinx and Laura

Breaks my heart to remember
I once thought that forever
We could last as good poetry
But unlike the broken pieces
You are lost in unused ink.

I know you are so convinced
I never did existed
But don’t you remember;
When it was love it was love
Not the hate-red you paint it.

Below is the original tanka by Laura, I (Vinz) modified and added mine (Above)…

“It breaks my heart to remember
I once thought
We would last as long as poetry
I watch the sun set
I’m convinced you went with it”

Disclaimer: it was just a collaboration of poetry for fun and publication not a display of affection or heartbreak please
