The Red Book

In those pages that I lay to rest
and closed those secrets for another day.

I found the rage still locked inside
it screamed and shouted as I buried it alive.

I closed the book, red it was
red with anger and rage inside.

She called to me like mother would child
take it, embrace it and feel alive.

I locked those secrets, lay them aside
and forgot those pages and walked alive.
