The Ever Enigmatic Red
Crackling, just beneath, the blistering heat
Encompassing in a too hot warmth.
Burning, slashed across, the tongue tingles
Doused to soothe the pain.
Roiling, deep within, the anger boiling
Spewing from the well beneath.
Loving, never taken, the power smiles
Gifted to others.
Devoting, all consumed, the passion intense
Bleeding, wells over, the drip falls
