50 Shades

50 shades

Fifty shades of blue and purple,
not a hearty valentine red,
but the bullied bruising
of submission
and an ego
heartily fed.

Bondage oh-so-simple,
following a path with downward trend
and an appetite which,
within its greed,
hurts both parties
in the end.

Not loving chains in gold and silver,
nor scarlet ribbon cuff,
but the tarnished,
one sided
her in rust.
