Rebecca Charles

Colliding

Like chilli flakes

   that ignite   the insides    of your mouth

 

 sand     pricked  the bottom

of my flat   soft feet.

 Minerals  spread    amongst my toes

    transmitting   radiance       clarity

    tickling the arch    of my skin.

 

The oasis of beauty    spread itself      in front of me

      I want to      swoosh my hands in

      I want to      dine with the waves

      I want my      clothes   to dilute

      into layers      of bubbles and blue

   absorb natures     finest instruments.

 

If you let    the precious symphony

   into   your mental madness

you can feel     what once was

   fizzle     froth away    into a landscape

    far more   superior    than I.

 

If you want to

 

If you want it   enough

   the purity

   that fills   the air around     will immerse you  

               it will alleviate

 but only     if you see

with an open heart

 

how     she can help

 

how she can help you   survive

 

   if you want to   survive.
