Hi there, BurankoLehmanf here with a short review. I hope it finds you well.First ImpressionsI find this poem on its own quite confusing. Most probably a play on orange is the new black or the like but the theme seems very forcible.Interpration

Hi! Just dropping in for a quick review. I really liked the meaning behind the poem. Everybody sees things different, and what somebody thinks is reality is different from someone else's reality. I think the poem might make a bit more sense if you changed the formatting in a way to where each statement is on the same line. Like, on line four I would move "the red" to the next line with the start of the sentence it pertains to. Other than that, I like how straight forward your poem is yet so meaningful. This is a good piece, and I can't wait to see what else you post!-Avery

Hey, TimidToto here!Red is red, it's obvious they know that. I like the sudden questioning and doubt that is asked when looking at the others though. Surely red is red but even still you see it linger there, despite knowing it is something else. The lines run into each other quickly, building up suspense and adding a flavor of mystery.The meaning of red is a little ambiguous, but I think that's the point. A nice colorful poem shrouded in suspicion and uncertainty, great job!Love your username by the way!-TimidToto
It was short, but somewhat meaningful. I wasn't entirely sure what the meaning was, but I know that it had one. Imagine a mass murder in which everything has turned red with blood. The main character is telling this to their therapist as he remembers all the blood. All the red. All he sees is red. All he smells is blood. All he wants, is to stop stop seeing red.
Hmmm..When I read this short poem,I thought of the saying:”Seeing red” but taken literally.Is it supposed to be taken literally or is it talking about seeing the world in a bad light? Either way,this was a nice read and I loved the lines:”Everything is actually red” because this shows how the protagonist sees the world.Good job and have a lovely day/night.
Good morning, afternoon, evening, night, or whatever applies to you in your respective time zone. Anyway, onto the review. I enjoyed this poem! It was nicely designed, and short and cute. It can be interpreted many different ways, but in interpreted it as different people, all seeing different colors as red, like man the narrator “just saw” is purple. I saw this as this man sees the color purple; And yet is told that is red, and so he believes it is red. In my interpretation, everyone has a different “red”. I would be curious to know the inspiration behind this poem, or even the intended interpretation. Again, I really enjoyed this poem, and hope to see more of your work around soon! Stay safe, and keep writing!-Lizzy
