Purple

by Delilah

 

Her favorite color

It always used to be

The dress on her rag doll

She’s had since three

In shimmering tones

Of that same color

Her toenails she painted

That night he first took her

But now

Indigo stains her skin

In shades much darker

She’s his rag doll

And her dress his cover
