ROYGBIV

Regret doesn't staunch the flow of a punched nose
Or delay the glowing sunset planned for two but watched alone.
You told me to "Piss off!"
Grass pales next to your injured anger.
Broken promises and an ocean now lie between us.
Infidelity leaves a stain that outlasts blueberry.
Violins, violence, a bruise and au revoir.
