Poetry inspired by the fragrance Psychedelic Love from Initio.
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.
