Red


Red

I write in red
the color of my wants
the view of my mood

I swim in blood
thick
sticky
devoid of living

My heart harbors in garnet
smooth
glassy
flat

Emotions lay in ruby
hard
stagnant
unfeeling

My body is in soft red
doughy
spreading

I am not the red
of the passionate life
Desired
Lustful
Loving
Pure
