2014 APRIL PAD CHALLENGE DAY 19: #FF0000 (Poem)

It’s not my favorite,
I’ll admit.
Irritated, angry
inflamed and hot,
it’s loud
and makes me stop.
Of blood and wine
and warning signs,
a poisonous alert –
flashing like it’s going to die
or explode at any time.
Still I suppose
it has its place
somewhere up
in passion’s face,
on roses and in
spaghetti sauce.
For some strange reason
my thoughts can’t cross,
red just turns me
completely off.
