If Envy is Green

If envy is green
Then what colour is jealousy?
Jealousy is purple,
A dark blooded, foreboding purple,
A potion brewed and fought over.
Suspicion, a dullish brown,
Growing dirtier as time flows,
Anger is black, not red.
Anger walks beside me on its four legs,
Snarling, rabid mouth,
Seeking to bite and tear,
To break and rip apart,
What tapestry, a lifetime has put together,
An orgy of frenzy.
Despair has no colour,
No life,
No Hue,
No sight of anything better,
A tight holding on to the meagerest crumb,
Fear screams yellow, as sirens descend and panic strikes,
Run to the right, run to the right
Try and hide, try and hide,
Lust is black; anger’s friend?
A black dwelling of pin-point intensity,
A dry-mouthed thirst, never quenched.
Pain, a suspended white that,
Waiting, waiting, waiting,
Strikes with venom flowing.
There is it is now!
No off switch, to save the day.
No off switch at all.

 

Friendliness? Happiness? Love?
Friendliness is a lime green,
Happiness, transparent, clear bubbllng water,
Flows of the freshest spring
Love, today, is blue,
Clear blue, crystal sky blue
Purest blue of hope and morning
Of clarity and sweetness.

 

Love, today,
Is you.
