Why did they make us wear red shirts?

It was always a death sentence for us

That was why I kept you at a distance

I wanted you to be safe

Why did they make you wear a red shirt?

There was always a curse on that color

It made me love you that much more

I had to prevent you from knowing

I only see now that that was wrong

Why did you wear a red shirt?

The color of human blood

And you,

The most human soul I've ever known

I had to push away

To make you safe

I was wrong

Why did you wear a red shirt anyway?

Chapter End Notes:

I know, I know; it doesn't rhyme. I'm terrible with rhyme scheme; sorry :(
