Back from holiday :P
My first poem in ages, still working out the kinks, but thank you for reading. <3

red steps

I'm back! For those of you who don't know, I was on holiday for the past six weeks. Hence why I wasn't on Commaful regularly. Anyway, hope everyone is well and here's a short poem on people who try. Some fail, but they pave the way for others. <3

Red steps to heaven

Red steps to heaven are not the hue of worn leather,

Red steps to heaven are not the hue of worn leather, of favourite shoes

Red steps to heaven are not the hue of worn leather, of favourite shoes or deep wine or dented couches.

It's a raw, guttural groan

It's a raw, guttural groan ricocheting off bare walls

It's a raw, guttural groan ricocheting off bare walls while we all sit and breathe,

It's a raw, guttural groan ricocheting off bare walls while we all sit and breathe, watching the safety net snap.

It's a stain, wine

It's a stain, wine on the carpet,

It's a stain, wine on the carpet, blood on the stairs;

It's a stain, wine on the carpet, blood on the stairs; angels strewn like pretty pictures

It's a stain, wine on the carpet, blood on the stairs; angels strewn like pretty pictures with almost an otherworldly glow.

They weren't afraid to try.

They weren't afraid to try. Now,

They weren't afraid to try. Now, they are immortalised

They weren't afraid to try. Now, they are immortalised in the red steps to heaven

They weren't afraid to try. Now, they are immortalised in the red steps to heaven whilst others wheeze

They weren't afraid to try. Now, they are immortalised in the red steps to heaven whilst others wheeze climbing the wet polish.
