Because Red Is Your Favorite Color
Poetry by Shawn Aveningo
The five sections of the book tell different sides of the story of human relationships, taking you from flirtation to loss, and from passion to sorrow to the slender hope that is reborn with second chances.
Because Red Is Your Favorite Color is Shawn’s third published collection of poetry. As a frequent Open Mic and Featured Poet Performer, she has become known for her heartfelt, passionate verse.
She has written this collection especially for lovers…
… who are trying to find love through the art of flirtation,
… who have discovered passion and are feeling the yearning from a long distance relationship or perhaps just can’t bear to be away from each other for even a day,
… who are lucky enough to be involved in loving relationships so deep they are free and confident to express their ecstasy,
… who are feeling the pain of heartache, betrayal or loss,
… and who are bravely trying to start over again, knowing that love and companionship are worth giving it one more try.
What They’re Saying…
Aveningo’s poems tell of a life experienced at full speed. In this, her latest collection, she splashes the pages with the wild emotions – love, lust, longing…and oh yes, the slippery one – passion.
