A Poem by Amy Barry

Candy Colours
Sunset paints the room
pink, red, yellow and gold.
A pleasant numbness
settles in my bones.
It dances
inside my head.
You bring the same
to your seduction
as you do to your music.
Eyes shut,
I smell the leather
of your coat,
the cigarettes on your lips.
Almost fearful,
I kiss you
Risking my life
with that kiss.
Like a fool.
Like an animal-
Desperately in love.
by a current
of wild happiness
that is dangerous,
but strangely-
