Red

Red

The color of shoes, nails and blood
The color of both rising and setting sun.
The color of fear, pain and anger.

It colors my world filling in the edges
I try not to see it, to focus on gentler shades
A shiny ripe apple, your lips, flowers.

But the darker deep shades intrude
Reminding me of what I'd like to forget
If only I could close my eyes and not see red.
