Not Red

My blood ceased being red.

Red is for the fearless, I am filled with fears.

Red is the color of the arrow pointing to the nearest exit and I’ve got no power to escape.

Red is for those who are filled with love, and I am far from being one.

I am buried in the murk.

I am not red, not red.
