These are all true feelings that I get when I hear/think of these words. I've tried my best to portray them, but they're fleeting, so it's hard.
I've always had this thing where, if I heard a surprising word or phrase, I would feel a sudden sensation that was a mixture of smell, taste, or just knowing
. (It's so hard to explain what I mean by that...) It was only once in a while, just a sort of jolt and then I forgot it again.
But last weekend I was in a pillow fight with my brother and my cousin, and one of them hit me really hard in the head with a memory foam pillow. Suddenly, I was really dizzy and the room was full of strange feelings. And since then, I've been having random 'synesthetic' moments in response to words being heard or read. Like the words I described in the poem.
I'm not sure if this is even considered to be synesthesia, but I have no better word for it. Even right now, as I write this, my skin is tingling with all the words that I'm thinking of.
I'm sorry if this seems weird.
I just thought that an explanation would make this poem a little less confusing.
