The Lady in Red

poem by: The Wave Poet
Written on Feb 13, 2018

The lady in red,

She is the one you hope 

To meet

Someday.


You project her,

Just like you

But at the same time

Not at all.


The lady in red,

Unique she is.


Maybe you notice her

Above a bridge

Or you sight her

In your dreams.


The lady in red,

Lost as she is,

Pursues a place

Where she belongs.


A place to call home.


You contemplate her hair

Shimmering below the sun

And her smile radiant

From a thousand miles.


She sees everything in grey

But she is red

And hopes someday

To be able to see the colors of the earth.


Maybe you scrutinize her walking in the streets

Maybe you detect her walking in your dreams

You know you can find her between lost souls

Taking pictures of the yard.


She is a flower,

A red one if I may,

But sometimes she develops into

Black lace.


But she is, underneath that skin

An ardent red.

The red some can see,

Some can appreciate.


The lady in red leaves you with desire.


She thinks 

She writes

She paints

Everything you see.


Maybe you saw the lady in red

Walking in your dreams

Maybe you saw her 

Walking in the streets.


In a plane somewhere

She travels to the past

Where everything red

Turns into black.


Lonely she feels,

She loses everything.


She is a powerful soul

Who thinks in red

Who breathes in red

Who sleeps in red.


Between those red lips

Wisdom appears.


The lady in red, 

Unique she is.

Maybe you detect her walking in your dreams.
