A/N: Synesthesia is a neurological condition in which certain senses are inexplicably intertwined with other senses; for example, when you say the word, "Lake," I see (in my mind's eye) the colors red and green. Enjoy this little ditty I wrote about experiencing this phenomenon on a daily basis.
I do not merely listen to a song,
I experience it.
I do not simply hear Sheeran’s voice,
I become it.
I do not just enjoy music,
I live it.
Sounds wrap themselves
In colors, in breaths of life
In memories, and light.
Songs are sonatas of color.
They are symphonies and orchestras,
Concertos and compositions
No moment is quite like another.
Nothing is so sweet a muse
As the blue blaze that surrounds me
When immersed in “Cold Coffee.”
Drums burst forth in fireworks,
Violins sing gold sunshine.
Pianos cry out in purple verse,
Guitars hum in russet rhyme.
Sounds are feelings;
Sending me reeling
Into the color-pyre.
