Reflections From An Oil Puddle

Poem By Jazzy Davies

If emotions were colours, would despair be black?
the dark side of joy, the flip side of love,
worn down and dull, edges all cracked,
a familiar place of never enough.
Loneliness would be flat, insipid and grey
when even hope has given up
and crawled shamefully away.
Misery like a bruise
the colour of abuse
and is jealousy green? or more like red?
both seem to take over
and blend, reluctantly, inside my head.
So what shade is happiness?
A sunny day? A compliment due?
It matters not
when I'm loving you.

Insatiable...(For You)

There's not enough time in this lifetime for us
no time for talk
no time for sleep
The need inside me is an ache

Recognition

When will you arrive?
waiting, not sure for what, or for whom
an absence felt, a yearning known
just knowing

The Smellpotpig

Its abode was the linen cupboard, in the corner of our room
A lesser known creature, nocturnal and vile

Duplicity

You were the hardest one to fool
you knew me inside out
knew my innermost thoughts, hopes, desires
it took some planning

Loved

She lays there, forehead damp,
chestnut hair fanned out,
cheeks flushed,
content smile playing on her lips,

Grinnin'

Sittin' here, smilin'
thinkin', whilin'
away time
before I get dialin'
