Describe the color red without using the word

“When you dip her in the middle of the dance floor, it is the color of her dress. When she whispers in your ear, it is the color of her lips. When you make love, it is the trace you want her to leave all over your body. When she places her palm over your heart, it is the color that comes to the surface as her fingertips trail like a sentence that can never be finished. When you see her in the bedroom with another, it is the color of your breath. When you smash the vase in the hall, it is the color that threatens you to abandon the shattered pieces. When you scream at the top of your lungs, it is the color that pierces the atmosphere. When she hears you, it is the color of her pulse. When you look in her eyes for the last time, it is the fading color of your heart falling to your knees. It is not the color you see when she leaves.”

  2. When he held her in his arms for the last time it was the color of his heartbeat. When he kissed her goodbye it was the color of her lips. When she told him to stop it was the color of her mood. When they discovered the wall between their worlds that kept them apart but beating as one, it was the color of the brick. when she touched him it was the color of his blood pulsing alive. when he complimented and teased her it was the color of her cheeks that made him smile. when she saw him in public it was the color of her nails that she chewed. when she was finally alone with him it was the color of their fire.
