SYNTHESIS OF SENSES ~BY MICHAEL MAUL

SYNTHESIS OF SENSES

A splash of tonic to set the mood.
A warm bath to dull the senses.
A mere 10 minutes into my aqua therapy and it happens.

As promised, the sandman shows up smelling of sweet death to send me to that gentle embrace I have waited for this entire day.
As I walk along the clouds, I leave behind drops of regret to help me find my way back to consciousness.

Sensual fog to relieve me of the mediocrity that is existence.
I find in this realm a peace that has escaped me in life.

What seems like an eternity passes and I start to find myself among the living knowing that my only reward for this sentence is a gentle passing into that most favorable experience that refuses a long-term commitment.
