Guilty Red

If guilt had a color
It would be deep red
Red as crimson
The color of pain
The color of betrayal
The color of heartache
Evidence of a struggle
A color you can't avoid
A reminder of broken promises
A stain you would hate to sustain
The symbol of death
A warning of danger
Yes, guilt has definitely got to be red
The color of anger
A totem of evil
Oh! Evil red
A color that denotes tears
Presumed color of fire, the consuming fire
The color of annoyance
Flirtatious red, adulterous red
Yes most definitely guilt is red
How so then, who can explain
Mans livelihood is red
Explain red with relation to passion
Royalty of red
Red in the greatest sacrifice of all time
But still
I can't picture pain without red
Oh! Two sided red
Who can really deduce you?
Oh! Guilty red.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
