Is Blood Really Red


Is blood really red
beacuse when you get shot
you see something

i see pain
not red

i see tears
not red

i see black as i go 2 space
not red

all i see is everything but red

    Red; the color of blood is a visual reminder of the pain that is otherwise difficult to see. When people feel they are dying on the inside, sometimes they want to see blood so that they know they are still alive. You say much with few words. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
