Red (Address)

This is a somewhat abstract response to La Maestra's latest prompt. Does it accurately reflect what the color red represents to you?

The burning heat
draws near to my skin
as I let my emotions run wild;
the passion in my dark blood
scalds me inside
with the anger and love
of a great flame -
my fiery heart
has finally conquered.

THat's a really SwEet poem! BUt, I think i'd like it better if ur heart failed in the end. it would mix with the tone better.

oh oops - the address. At first I thought yellow becuase I assumed the heat on your skin was the sun. but by the end it was DEFINETLY red.
