"Like a Kiss From the Lips of Ra That Burns On."
Passion, ardor, beauty, sadness, lovely lovely tears, dark cries, secrets, fire, fury, desire, love, pain, shadows, cravings, hunger, bites, scratches, kisses, longing, rapture, dwelling, fervence, hauntings, obsession, eternity, infatuation, the color red, forever and ever...... and that's what this woman is made of...
“The Symbolism of red is made up of life, death, femininity, virility, violence, happiness, evil, saintliness, holiness, luxury, destitution, euphoria, and laughter…The Murky red of brothels…the sumptuous theaters with their rich velvet curtains…the color of the devils’ robes…Idealistic red. The red of protest…calling for violence, blood and a break from dogma…a poisonous red of seduction…Red is a key and when applied to the lips, will open all doors.”
~ From Red, by Stephanie Busuttil
