~a Feeling. - Poem by Mishaal Javed

I want to taste your words
Taste them and breathe them
Engulf myself in them, surround myself in them,
A whirling twirling haze of emotions and confusion
They talk to me, even when they aren’t speaking
Close my eyelids, softly, slowly
And wrap myself in the beauty of language
A beauty that transgresses beauty- -
A beauty that speaks a language of feeling and longing.
I want to personify the art form.
Read it and see it and imagine it in a vivid dream.
Taste it on the tip of my crimson tongue
Cry at the sound of its sorrow
Experience it, that’s all I want.
To taste it, that’s all I want.
