Red

msquared's picture

By and by and
Low and low
The memories fade
Like a shirt
Gone through one too many
Wash cycles in my eyes
And your words
They settle
To acoustic dust
Only disturbed from
Melodic slumber
By the explosions of my
Tears
Spelling out your name
In desperate, cursive letters
Your name is a specter
Haunting my frightened
Neurons blasting
Leaping, electric thorns shed
From your persistent rose
Flowering amidst the
Ashes of your vacancy
Its nagging petals
Terribly scarlet in the
Aftermath
Of dreaded downfall
And all I see is red
Red
Rising, falling
Laughing, crying
Weary
Red
Everywhere
Red

This is great.

Say, have I told you that I really like you, msquared?

-Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal savior?
-Uh, you know I meant to, and then I just got really busy.
