    Red
    The color of money
    Washed in the blood of a dying belief
    That love & happiness can be bought
    Red
    The color of a still heart
    As it lays broken, in a thousand pieces
    By a lover’s goodbye
    Red
    The color of the evening sky
    As the sun sets after a particularly harsh day
    Red
    The color of sadness
    Red
    The color of my rage
    The Red tint that disguises my once brown eyes
    An intense feeling that overwhelms me
    Consumes me
    Fills me
    With the color
    Red
    Anger sits deep within my soul
    Vengeance is the mantra that the inner me recites
    Red
    Seeps from my fingertips pouring out words of secret hate
    Line after line
    Of cold harsh reality
    Half-truths buried in between the lines
    A perfect facsimile
    Of what appears to be a happy woman
    Deeply in love
    Red
    The color of the mask that I wear
    On the inside
    Red is the color of my soul
    The inner me
    Red is the color that holds
    The secrets that I hide
