So why did I tread into your garden?
Encompassed by the pink heliotrope,
Yellow ylang-ylang and white jasmin –
Twisting together like a tye-dye shirt.

All my friends warned me not to flirt with you;
That those like you will play with my awareness.
That the cleverest poisons are hidden
With light touches of sugary sweetness.

But now I find myself overwhelmed by
By something so soft and pacifying
So why do I taste electricity
An effervescence on my tongue – fizzing.

Feeling so conscious of your love right now.
But something tells me it’s a delusion.

    Some very brilliant lines – oh and the conclusion too! Perhaps I shouldn’t pick lines, the whole poem is so brilliant beautiful.

    If they are reliable and truthful you should trust their judgement, as if they knew her, only you know the truth.

    This made me feel hollow and empty. Nothing is delusional if you are genuine.
    But then the poetry is about psychedelic and it never gives a positive impression, it’s fragile, like it won’t last.
    There are others and they are stronger and steadfast…..but I love the gentle mix of colour and fragrance.
