My take on Jenny

normally i am pretty careless

but when it came to Jenny i was jealous

i could hear all of the noise

which was coming from the desperate boys

everyone wanted her

and if i was them she would be the one i prefer

in this life she will probably go far

the top student and sports star

if i have to be honest and say…

sometimes at night i stay up and pray

because when i read about her in the view of a lover

i realised the way she makes others flutter

the jealousy she creates. everyone wished they were that guy

a group who never noticed me. now i know why

she locks them in and throws the keys

inspired a poem and many stories

and i hate to admit

but this is Jenny’s world. we just live in it

    It's a real honour to have a poem dedicated to me. Thank you, Keisha! For those of you who don't know, Jenny is a character who appears in my own writing and you can read about her on my Vocal page. However, you don't have to do so to appreciate what Keisha has accomplished in this poem, which stands up just fine without any need for the reader to be familiar with her source. The great thing here is that Keisha could be talking about a person, rather than a fictitious character, because the feelings she invokes are so real. Jealousy may be painful, but we all know what it feels like, and emotionally this poem puts us right where the narrator is. Note too the feelings of loneliness, isolation, of struggle to live up to an impossible ideal, which emerge poignantly towards the end. I think we've all met people who make us feel a bit like that too. Quite honestly, even I'm amazed at how like a real person Jenny seems here - and I invented Jenny! But that's all down to Keisha's sheer writing skill. Conveying humanity, even when talking about another writer's creation, is surely the measure of a true poet. As for Jenny herself, and whether she leaves you feeling like Keisha did, that's surely up to the individual reader! So, this Doctor's recommendations are "Saucy!" "Morgan," "Lessons in Love" and "The Flashback Starts," along with "Wildflower, Chapter Two" and "The Things we Find, Chapters One and Four" (in these Jenny goes by the name Mini-Flash Juniper) plus any story with her name in the title. My biggest recommendation of all though is to read more by Keisha. What a poet!
