Shades Of Red - Poem by Lexy Sogl

I’ll never fail to remember
The shade of red

I turned
When you sat next to me

On that out of order bench
Whilst I read that tasteless piece of writing

I can still see
The shade of red
Your lips were

After I kissed you
That first time

You started off shy
Not knowing exactly
What I sought to hear

Contrary to the lightning
illuminating the gloomy sky

You heard me
Before you tasted me, with your eyes

5: 17, one odd morning
we parted

I try not to keep in mind
Of the tears that escaped the clasp of my eyes

In that light

I could have sworn

Was a
a shade of red

    A lovely, sensuous glimpse of a chance encounter. Your work shows a thoughtfulness that I hope you will continue to develop as you write! (Report)Reply
