Red Is For Love

Poem Red is for Love Library

Red is for Love

~ :: ~

Red is the color of my heart,
That is full of Love
for you.
Red is the color of fire,
The fire that burns in my heart.

Red is the color of hatred,
An emotion I feel so often.
Hatred toward pain,
And all that is evil.

Red is the color of throats,
Throats crying out in pain,
Begging for a chance to Love -
A chance to live.

Red is for pain,
Pain I feel when I can't be with you,
When I can't feel your Love.

Red is the color of Love,
And everything corresponding with Affection.
Love is the most beautiful of all gifts,
That has been given to this earth.

Love is enduring,
But so is its opposite.
Hatred will always exist,
My hatred for the one that killed her.
But so will Love,
My Love for you...

:kaukau: I like this poem, especially considering that the last time I read a love poem here on BZPower it was only able to capture superficialities associated with the concept. In other words, it was emotional love rather than spiritual love. I think that this tackles the concept and manages, subconsciously, to see love as more of a universal archetype and as an idea rather than a sensation.

Besides that, I love how you bring together all of the associations that come with the color red. I think the one thing you left out was blood, but you came pretty close. The only other things that I can think of are red as a color meant to stand out, which can be seen in Schindler's List, The Sixth Sense, and Star Trek. They all use the idea in very different ways, but regardless red somehow seems to be the common denominator. I don't know what subconscious symbolism that plays upon.

By the way, I also found your reference to the color of throats very interesting. In my fictional Kitilik culture, the throat has traditionally taken the place of the heart to symbolize emotion and love, since it's where breath passes, singing voices flow, and tears form. Since I try to get into character as much as I can to adopt the mindsets of my fictional cultures and characters, I find that symbolism particularly potent.

Your Honor,

Yeah, looking back on it there's many different things I could've added to it or changed. I just wrote this freshman year (dang, hard to believe that was four years ago already) as an assignment to write a poem about a color. Still, though, it is an interesting idea with all the associations and such as you mentioned.
