Give me Red

Red provokes
Red instigates
Red alerts
Red promises
Red compromises
Red ravishes
Red melts and makes molten
The hard concrete wishes
That lie trapped in icy chambers of the intellect

Gory is the tale of Red
A saga of suffering is all Red
The battleground has dust all Red
My heart that bleeds for you is Red
The rose you gave me once was Red
And now lies parched between the pages of Orhan Pamukh’s novel-
My name is Red
(written in  idleness ... wanted to leave it unfinished.sometimes there’s a sense of completion in things unfinished.Anyway,the colour red is all around me.i love it.)

kahlil Gibran

“One day you will ask me which is more important? My life or yours? 

I will say mine 

and you will walk away not knowing that you are my life.”

― Khalil Gibran
