Day 10 – Burning Red

Day 10- Pick a one-line song lyric to serve as an epigraph to your poem. Then, write the poem to accompany it.
But loving him was red. Oh, red. Burning red.-Taylor Swift

But loving him was red. Oh, red. Burning red.

Red with the energy of an explosion in a newborn war.

Red bordering on the extreme, never afraid to dream.

Red that empowers and gives the strength to move on.

Red filled with passion and desire.

Red as the intensity of a roaring fire.

Red increasing my respiration and blood pressure.

Red that takes me on a new crazy adventure.
