She dropped it into the river.

She picks up

Scattered petals

From wilted roses.

 

She treads water

Hair soaked through

Wonders at her curse.

 

Looks at the twisted branches

Overhead.

 

Treads water.

 

They say she found

Her love in the depths.

 

He was face down

Body covered.

 

Yet still

She knew him.

 

They say he waited

For her

Until he could

No more.

 

She found his heart

In those petals

And

She dropped it into the river.
