Red

The knot is tight and tighter it gets

Going round and round

Wrapping the scarlet flesh in full

As each side is pulled,

Harder and harder,

By the choices you made.

Your memories release

Drop after drop,

Crimson and warm,

Leaving you dry and aching. It’s hurting now, crumbling.

Another loop, another tie.

Pain is all you ever wanted to feel

So you can never die

But lie in your rosy puddle

And loosen the ties.
