Red Like You (31 Days-Day #14)

Jill shared a journal entry from a while back…so I thought it was my turn. This was a poem I wrote, randomly. Most of my writing comes out in song lyric or journal entry blog posts…but late at night in July, in 2008, I wrote this poem. xo -kate

Red Like You

Tied down

Wet fists thrown at me

I swallow

Try not to drown

My skin

Handed blue paint to wear

I hide

Close my eyes

But they still win

Because now I’m all black and blue

With the paint they threw

They forced me

They’ll force you too

Now I’m stuck in the painting all blue

When inside I’m red like you
