Synesthesia-a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.

--------------------------------------
Synesthesia (20 April 2013)

I hear music in the words.
Taste the sound exploding on my tongue.
Each exhalation is like a hand

tracing its way down my arm,
reaching up to cup my cheek
and I sigh.


Every syllable bursts behind my closed lids—
camera-flash—illuminating images in the shadows.
You paint sensation on my soul with

your pen
your tongue
your fingers—


—Rat-a-tat! drums beat up and down my spine.
You fly and take me with you

higher
brighter
faster


into tremulous life
and then it stops,

and all that’s left is
the simple sound of our breath
intermingling in the dark.

Every other paragraph is formatted to the right on paper, but I haven't been able to replicate that here. Please accept this poor formatting substitution.

I'm still finagling with word choices here and there, so any and all feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
