Dreaming Red

I left the window open last night as I slept

I hoped you’d come and slip inside my dream

To the place where we first met

It began with a shifting color scheme


I found you there inside my mind

Commanding a storm of violent reds

Convinced I would only find

nothing but broken threads


I stepped through a broken glass

and the red swallowed the blood

Your first words said I shall pass

Inside my heart began to flood


I shivered with demonic heat

You ran through me with vengeance

The pain was an intense treat

Your violence a welcome cadence


Tonight I wait and I dream

I breathe and I cry

Your leaving is a theme

In your absence I die.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
