It is the color of her lipstick

the fierce look in her eyes that could pierce through your soul.


It’s the way you kiss her,

with all the passion in the world.


It’s the hearts beating together

as they sway on the dance floor.


When you scream to the point of tears,

it is the color of your breath

and your anger.


But it is also the color that slowly fades from your body

as you draw your last breath.
