Trapped Within A Glass-Shard Maze

Painted only blue
Sorrow in every sinking hue
Wrote only black
Walking limbos gay fading tracks

A broken heart sees haze
Trapped within a glass-shard maze

Suddenly there’s you
Swapping colours for shining new
Red bricks crack
Rainbow colours flooding back

A broken heart sees haze
Trapped within a glass-shard maze

Bloodred life begin anew
Changing this burnt desert view
Healing what was cracked
Bringing back my beloved lilacs

A healing heart’s star blaze
Flaming within a rose tinted gaze

Written for MTB: Synesthesia over at dVerse poets pub.

I find Synesthesia, really interesting. Looking at that Tedtalk and the Lorde interview (see videos below) I’m reminded of those patterns and colors I get as warning before and during a migraine attack. The patterns and colors change due to sound and touch, and have nothing whatsoever to do with object reality.

  1. Lovely rhyming verses. Specially like the turn from blue sorrow hues to rainbow colors. The ending part is my favorite:

    A healing heart’s star blaze
    Flaming within a rose tinted gaze

  2. So much to praise in this poem, but I too am particularly drawn to the repeated lines:
    ‘A broken heart sees haze
    Trapped within a glass-shard maze’.
    Colours in migraines – yes, I’ve seen them too.
