Red And Black

I’m meeting the girl again today


Behind her windowpane.


She intrigues my soul


As I watch her roll


On her bed without control.


 


The girl with Red beneath the Black


Sleeps with her head in Curls.


Curled and tall.


Curled in a ball.


Is she hiding or is she small?


 


If she is hiding, the world should wait,


She may be scared of herself.


If she is small


No longer tall


She is not scared at all.


 


But if she is Red beneath the Black


Is Black the girl she is?


And if the Red


Is completely dead


Is Black the girl in bed?


 


What happened to the girl with Red?


It matters not to me.


If Red is tame


Black is the game.


To me they are the same.


 


What matters is she sleeps with Curls.


Are Black and Red both wrong?


Has she been missing


Or reminiscing


A different Color all along?


 


Or are these Curls just curls of warmth


Hiding but from the cold.


Then give her slack.


No more attack.


Sleep girl, both Red and Black.
