Jade Green #atozchallenge #napowrimo

cat eyes

Jade Green

were her eyes

like a feline’s lies

Fire Red

flames she licked

that poured from her lips

Tawny Brown

was her skin

beckoned with drops of sin

Coal Black

was her heart

mine pierced like a dart

Dandelion Yellow

was my skin

poison crept deep within

Verdant Green

was the spot

upon my name the plot

Jade Green

were her eyes

now she wears widow’s disguise

    1. Jenny,thanks for the visit! a song too? i would prefer it in rock. :DHaikuWater,thanks for vtiiisng! your words will encourage me to post more at the poetry pantry. :)you are right that the subway can be a metaphor for many things: claustrophobia, loneliness, urban life. i am glad that you enjoyed the poem. 🙂


    1. Hi Tash–the shadows are rellay strong within! You definitely manage to elude them and describe the struggle well. I have such issues that I often think of going completely incognito! Maybe will do someday – when you see the blog DailyDManic–you’ll know who it is! K.
