Human Hues

Human Hues

A Poem by S.zaynab.kamoonpury

She slipped clumsily in a café
Looked all around her
from the corner of her eye
Felt all eyes upon her
Bit her lip and
flushed crimson
most disconcertedly.

He was sacked,  fired at work
Got down in the dumps
Was down and out
Left feeling blue
so gloomily.

He gave her a blossomed rose
Blood rushed to her cheeks
She blushed a deep red so joyously.

She watched her rival from afar
Summed up her envy in reflex
and turned green so jealously.

It looked hale and hearty
Ooh, the cherubic chubby cheeks
Baby looked in the pink
as it babbled away innocently.

She heard of a loved one's demise.
That was a shock indeed
She went white as a sheet
as she then wept so woefully.

She saw a teeny-weeny spider on her skirts
Talk of arachnids and phobias, yikes!
She turned a pale yellow in fright
as she screamed so fearfully.

He found his sweetheart in another man's arms
Doubted his own manly charms
and his face went purple with rage almost instantly.

He faced his lifelong enemy
Hate brimmed up in him
as his bitterness found a vent
He shot him a black glare
quite very scornfully

well, well, it might seem that the worst of all the human hues
are the melancholic depressing blues
But I think being green when for jealousy
and the black of hate
top the list in deserving poohs.

Mind you all these
human pigmentation of emotion
are a matter of reflex
for you can't choose
which of the human hues
you'd like to wear, on party day
and which you'd rather not use.

The twisted game of love. Can break our hearts. You create a situation where the person heart was finding sadness. I liked the personal feel of the poetry my dear friend. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.

Thanks for your comment!
I think your poem is a creative and engaging exploration of the many emotions that we experience as human beings. You use color and imagery in a powerful way to convey the intensity of these emotions, and I particularly enjoyed the lines about being green with jealousy and black with hate.

Your poem seems to suggest that our emotions are a natural and reflexive response to the world around us, and that we cannot always control or choose how we feel. It's a reminder that we are all human, and that we all experience a range of emotions throughout our lives.

Beautifully constructed with a rich array of hues. Leaves me
slightly green with envy but then the joy of admiration settles
in like sunshine leaving me content with what I have and what
you have. Good stuff amigo.

ok now, there are many facets in this piece
your use of colors is colorful at the least ... metaphorically of course
but the shing star is the last word of each last sentence of the first 9 stanzas ends in words ending in ly
genius use of poetic license that keeps this out of the box
