Red memories.
Drowning in blood.
Red desires.
Dripping in sarcasm.
Fresh mud,
deeply staining.
Our feet walking.
No clear direction.
Just drifting.
Searching for nothing.
Red dreams
soaked in distress.
I wonder
if you'll
remember our passion?
Red balloons.
Drunk on fresh air.
Dipping in horror.
Soft bellies.
Intensely aching,
forsaking all traces
of moving along.
Rolling vowels
earnestly deploying.
Red living.
I wonder
if you'll
ever forgive me?
