Faded-out jeans

Leila Swan and Hana - 072612

I once had a love
that was as deep as the indigo
in my favorite jeans.

I wore both too often for a time,
The love tore away from me.
The jeans continued fading out with each washing.

I threw out the jeans today - the indigo is gone.
The denim's faded like her love - both faded for them.
Neither were under my control, but they both bled out from my indiscriminate use.
