The colour red is the colour for bloodshed. In sheep's clothing The wolf came loathing Appeared as though love But filled with deceit inside that glove The colour red It's wickedness had spread That dragon now Will be coerced to bow For damages caused She will respond The colour red Was abundantly fed With sweet tasting honey And things that cost money But now it will bleed For all its deeds The colour red Lay on the bed And wrapped its tentacles Around those ventricles But, the thorns were not visible until Its petals fell out as it leaped for the kill But the colour red Is going to be dead At least, that's what karma says A feast has been prepared Come dine at the altar Of the dark mass slaughter Crimson to scarlet, it's going to be fun When carmine and ruby, all shades get undone Gradient hues graduating one-by-one Into buckets of colour, squeezed out in tonnes It'll be satiating to paint such a masterpiece So many colours on the board will finally bring peace

Disclaimer: This poem is purely literary. Please read it with an open mind and out of respect for the written word. To me, writing is my life. There is nothing I love more. I have a very creative imagination. Most of my poems do not hint at my life/situation. Kindly refrain from drawing such parallels. Much of what I write is purely fictional. Situations and examples may be hypothetical. I have always written from my heart …about topics that I am passionate about – Christianity, makeup, melancholic poetry, food, romance, women’s issues, soulful music, narratives etc. Given the circumstances, my gender, situation, geography etc., I feel the need to put up a disclaimer every time I write a romantic/melancholic/intense piece. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. But, please don’t interpret this poem in a way it was not intended. That is just my humble request. Please note, some of my writings may contain material unsuitable for children. And please excuse typos and minor errors; I don’t really get the time to re-read or edit.
