Red, Red Wine - Poem by Scarlett Treat

Remembering, I ponder my wine glass,
Envisioning blazing night embers,
Shadows dancing in my dreams,
And I consider......Love.

I am indecisive,
My memories are desolate,
And I question your love
Because you called Collect!

I wonder where your soul is
As these restless night shadows burn,
While memory's red, red colors bleed
Like a clock's relentless flight.
