Synesthesia

 

Your thoughts

Roll in as waves

Your feelings

Follow these waves

Rendering me

Utterly helpless

There is no beginning

No end

Here

Even the word “Here”

Is incorrect

“There?”

Wrong as well

“Nowhere?”

Maybe

“Everywhere?”

Yes

We listen to these trial words

As we roam around the grounds

That surround

The house without walls

 

We ourselves are surrounded

By the building blocks of our world

The building blocks of our lives

Numbers

Each and every one

Carrying color and weight

All its own

Days, weeks, years, you…me

Numbers

Colors

Each color

Each and every one

Triggering a feeling

Feelings

Then of course

Responses…actions

Then

Reactions

Somewhere…nowhere

Everywhere

Those misplaced words again

 

My Gawd the words!

Land like rocks in the pond

Look at the waves

Here, I will try three at once

“I love you”

We watch multiple waves

Heading off in multiple directions

Actions

Then reactions

 

Quietly,

I will throw again

Please…

You better stand back a bit,

“I love you

Sleep well…dream well,

Love…

My love,

Goodnight.”

 

Your smile can be heard,

Then only waves

Of silence

Stillness

As we lie and watch

Colorful numbers…feelings

Drifting lightly

Peacefully

Far above the dark beautiful night
