RED

A Poem by Rob Santana
"

The colour is RED (lyrics)

"
My soul is RED
my spirit, forever RED,

look at my clothes...

 RED

my aura....injured

eyes...RED

your knuckles...BLOOD RED

the butcher's laugh...
 RED

my shoes, RED

you slowly enter my room
quickly flicking the switch...

RED light...ON

you're familiar
with my room

you crawl on your knees
and shake my bed

I look outside
my bedroom window

the entire sky...
turned RED

I can see
your poison glowing

as it creeps
across my soul

welcome to 
the freak show
of golden abuse

I remain silent
in my fleshly tomb

I love the use of red as the dark colour, rather than your typical black or something. I also like the structure and the creepy imagery of 'crawl[ing] on your knees and shake my bed'. Makes it seem like a freaky creature. Very nicely done.

Thank you very much Rhia. I appreciate your read and review. I'm glad you liked it.
Paints the obsessive need of the addict - only one thing on the mind until Golden brown releases the rest of the colour spectrum again.
Great writing Rob and skillfully done.

Thanks bro.
I had to read this one a couple of times. It is an intense read. Very powerful. Red has such a potent symbolic value that is wrung to its fullest ripeness in this poem. Very strong stuff. I love its short, rat-tat-tat rhythm. I thought it was quite effective. Excellent poem!

Thank you very much Layi.
Very surreal poetry here. I have a thing for the color red. Red is very easy to write about, because the color itself symbolizes a lot. I myself have considered writing a poem about it, but after reading this, damn, I won't have anything better to say! Haha!

Rock on, Rob!

hmmmmmmmmmmmm????? thanks for stopping by :)
These lyrics scream intensity. I picture being thrown around in images but each time its flushed by a room full of blood. Red feels consuming, it makes me feel involuntarily volunteering myself to it. I felt like the color Red had a variety of characters and each containing certain emotions. Very controlling, thrilling and intense, I liked it a lot, I enjoy the splash of red on your words brother..brutal lyrics.
