Antares by Jaqueline Rose Gregory

my color is Red

says the star Antares

scorpio stings one thousand deaths

leaving a breathless body

to rot in the desert

her eyes see through you

her eyes fill your soul with fear

she holds her composure

this is really the true light in her

they think it’s dangerous

it’s her only protection

from the raging sea

the storm forms a swell,

that sucks the anger from within

when she opens her eyes

her star is shining

brighter than the sun

Antares looks over her

like a protector

with a shield

the battle is over

the sting subsides

her color is still Red

and the bitch within

can finally breathe
