Synaesthesia

I can taste the colours of your kiss
Fiery crimsons bursting through 
Mellow yellows
Exploding into sweet tangelo
Cool blues
Turning violet
As my senses play this quiet duet

I hear music when you touch me
Bass lines throbbing alongside
Exotic rhythms
Tumbling into trembling strings
Soaring voices
Dulcet tones
Within your music my body groans

I can smell flowers in your words
Tender Honeysuckle pervades
Alluring Rose
Sweet Alyssum quickly follows
Heady Jasmine
Lascivious Lilies
Impressions that set my spirit free

You muddle my mind with euphoria
Sensibility rearranged 
In anticipation 
Of this intoxication
I live 
In Synaesthesia
Whenever you are near

Vicki - you really are a naughty pixie and your preferred themes give you away. THAT SAID, YOU CERTAINLY HAVE A GIFT FOR IT! This piece is terrific.

Great title.

A difficult subject as so many people attempt to translate the affect of touch into words, it has been done so often. The mixture of music, colour and botany works nicely.

The worst of kisses are the ones long anticipated which translate to grey, so disappointing.

That said, as someone so rightly once uttered, "Its all downhill after the first kiss"

Lou Reed, actually.
