Chessboard Sea

poem by: Jazz Force
Written on Nov 27, 2017

Though jewels sparkle
Like suns spinning
Love is suspended
In you

Though I jilted jasmine
For sandalwood
Period pieces
Of your life
Radiate
An abalone afternoon

Those onyx faces you despise
Suddenly
Come alive
On the Chessboard
See!

Your poetry isn't even poetry. Do you know that??

Have you studied creative writing? Verlaine, Rimbaud, Ogden Nash.. Read them if you can..

Take some classes, or just read to comprehend basics. It's a craft like art.
