Red is such an interesting color to correlate with emotion, because it's on both ends of the spectrum.
On one end you have happiness, falling in love, infatuation with someone, passion, all that.
On the other end, you've got obsession, jealousy, danger, fear, anger and frustration.

Morning Argument
Pretty in red
black hair straight
she got out of bed
she got up and she read
my story, not of plates,
pretty in red
my poem led
us to a debate
she got out of bedshe sang instead
so early, not late
pretty in red
she was now quite ahead
she always knew the date
pretty in red
she got out of bed.
