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
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.
