Red

The sign, the keeper, the reaper.
Color enough
to speak without words
of love and lust
fire and blood
rendering us

Lipstick left
fiery embers drift
deaths’ grip
loves’ gift
all painted in

Red

Found

Her swollen eyes still holding back tears.
She didn’t want to be there.

He watched her and wandered
and wished and wanted.

She was the one who stirred his heart.
His eyes never saw all of her flaws. 

And then he took a chance 
and he made her laugh.

And in his eyes she saw something
she’s never had. 

A good man.
