“Synesthesia”

 

He smiles at me across the room

Blue eyes glinting

Knowing secrets

He does

Padding feet on the floor

I’ve known this before

The curl of a lip

Thrusting hip

Arms crossed

Legs tangled

There’s a war under my skin

Bubbling and peaking

Lightning flashes through you

Smelling of apples and freedom

Fresh blood and fine linen

Sweat

Salt

Satin

Sweet

Nothing tastes better

Than your laughter in my mouth

Like sugar

Taken to a time, a place

Brushing ankles and touching smiles

Where everything is surreal

Black curls and messy kisses

Where no one exists

Ghosting hands

Nothing exists

Hushed whispers

Except

Your eyes on mine

The Red

Arching backs

The White

Curling toes

The Black

Teeth sink

I stroke your matted hair

My ears are ringing

Can you hear it?
