Color You Red From Within

Perhaps I’ve forgotten to be myself,
I have loved like the ocean hungry

All I sense is rage in you
and me, driven like the black sky.
Your breath like live flowers,
live flesh.

All these people: a flood of colors,
kaleidoscopic dreams.
I do not want to walk here in tomorrows,
plastic shoes and crystalline smiles
with laid-out music.

I am paralyzed with fears that say things
while I am sleeping.

Burgundy pink lights to magnify my skin,
clothes feel like strangeness,
memories to be discarded like time pressed. 

So much has excited my body,
bathed in opium reflections,
sedated into starry madness.
How long does it take to get to heaven?
And to color you red from within?
