Neil Crosby

(December 10,1992 / Fort Knox, Kentucky)

When you see the color red


When you see the color red
Do you see me bloody and dead
When you see the color red
Do you picture me free of dread
What do you see
Do you see yourself hurting me
What do you see
Do you give a chance to be
When you see the color red
Did you see the rose dead
When you see the color red
Do you love me or am I just dead

    I love the colour red but I never see the bad side of this colour. Like Viola says, red depicts passion. I guess this is a passionate write though... Keep writing. HG: -) xx (Report) Reply
