"There are three rules for writing the novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are."~W. Somerset Maugham


Burning anger,
A shade of doom.
The way it feels
Fluctuating between embarrassment and despair
With a blush
Flooding from your hairline
To your chin.
A sense of sweetness
Buried in a plump rose,
A glimmering ruby
Catching the light.
The feel of a burn,
The feel of pain,
As the blood
Oozes from the scar
On your finger.
The way it feels
To glance
At the Sun.
White-hot hatred,
Yet mingling with the
Strangest sense of release
Rolled into one.
Scarlet.

This was a school assignment. My English teacher told us to write a poem about a color, and this is what I came up with. It's really weird. But. Whatever.
