red shade

Updated on August 4, 2011

illuminate me with you're lipstick

red light dances on my thighs

bringing me the wisdom

that i have given to myself.

some nights the light is lonely

coming only from the window

and the district lights they call me

waiting for my answer

Red sail sings me to new moments

and the songs are crystal clear

wanting only of my breath

for islands can be freeing

Red sheets pull me from my passion

taking me to heights

that i never knew were within me

on evenings when its right

the cool refreshing feeling

that red would not thought bring

when you feel the waves coming

and washing over the nights harsh breeze

red lipstick on you're collar

rented suits that graze me

within the crowded surroundings

i cant be the only one that gets turned on by a tie.

red walls can be consuming

as they close in on your beat

with the rhythms you succumb to

when you've tired of you're feet.

red sky breathes my soul

and makes a dreamer of me

setting in to bring the moon

just waiting for the stars to reach me.

      Great piece Pink'Um, a red royal flush from ten to ace in hearts to be sure. Where is my ruby red tie when I need it?

      Purple soul bleeding light in the eyes of desire so cold.

      Blue sets in and takes control of my life.

      Pink skin burning bright in the arms of love.

      Red now the vision of these dreams I see with you.

      How you take from me my will,

      in colors so beautiful.

      Finding only one way to survive,

      in Red or purple fantasies.

      All that I am is for your Red,

      with new hopes burning clean I can see.

      Black heart once so dead,

      now that yor love has rescued me.

      Red you speak so clear.

      Clear heart taking Blue.

      Blue and Red making Purple.

      Purple dreams of light in your touch.

      Who I am is beyond my thoughts,

      where your love is more than images seen.

      All of the fears I have fought,

      to find truth in a heart I used to be.

      How your Red made my black.

      Black on blue and purple dreams.

      Dreams of a loveless soul.

      Soul inside of Red dreams so beautiful.

      Here is my soul asking love to stay,

      in a moment of despair crying out.

      In my heart where we lovers can say,

      here in my heart love is found.
