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.
