Shades of red

She is pretty if she has it on her forehead,

She is slutty if she has it on her lips,

She is deserving of respect if she has it on the partingΒ of her hair,

She is careless if it peeps out of her top,

She is traditional if she has it on her nails,

She is owned if she drapes it on her body,

She’s pure if he sees it on the bed sheet,


All hell breaks loose if it stains her pants!

Strange is the color red…


This was in response to the prompt word “Red

  16. Anisha! This is ultimate. Taking the Red color while explaining woman’s features. I just loved to read it.
    She is furious and dangerous when she holds it in her palm and puts out her tongue.
    She is full of sorrow when it depicts in her eyes.
    She looks pretty when it bumps on her cheeks.
    Red! I love, you can see on my blog, it is evident.
    Fond Regards
