HER BLOOD

By , Sioux City, IA
R is for Red,
Red is for rage,
Red is for regret,
Red is for revenge.
It is the color of passion,
The color of heat,
The shape of a beating,
Bleeding heart.

R is for Red,
Red is for devotion,
Red is for love,
Red is for desolation.
It is the color of chagrin,
The color of a fresh burn,
The sound of a scream,
The misshapen form of
Chaos and hate.

R is for Red,
And red is an escape,
It fills in the seams,
The seams of a broken heart,
The gaps in dreams.
It is the color of roses,
The color of the
End.

R is for Red.
R is for Red.
She saw it in the
Corners of her eyes.
R is for Red.
R is for Red.
She saw it when she
Looked into his eyes.

R is for Red.
R is for Red.
She saw it when she
Felt his betrayal.
R is for Red.
R is for Red.
She felt it as she
Bathed in her blood.

R is for Red,
Red is for death,
Red is for birth,
Red is for fire.
It is the color of
Delighted screams,
The shape of a howl.
R is for Red.
The color of Power.
