Red Light

have you ever felt like the flashing red light on the roof, lonely as ever visible at night, useless by day? in sync with its partner next door for a quick kiss over a few flashes only then arguing again and again night in, night out. have you ever felt like the flashing red light on the roof, not signaling a warning to keep away but sending a call for compassion? using the dark pauses in between to yell the same name over and over and over into the emptiness of each night. have you ever felt like the flashing red light on the roof, being your silent cry only heard by your eternal love?

Such a deep, imaginative and creative write. Lights, especially, definitely, at night, are beacons for our imaginations, and in your case, an impressive poem. CayCay
