Red

I'm swimming in red today.
Don't mind me,
Don't let me cause you delay,
In your daily comings and goings.

 

I'm swimming in red today.
People like to stare,
As if I'll just go away.
Why do they stare?

 

I'm swimming in red today.
People are crying,
Calling for me to stay.
Don't they know I have to go?

 

I'm swimming in red today.
Others call it a tragedy
Looking where I lay.
I don't find it terrible.

 

I'm swimming in red today.
They say I'm dead,
Though I feel okay.
It would hurt to die, I think.

 

I'm swimming in red today.
