Title: YOUR THEME
Line 1: What colour is it?
Line 2: What does it sound like?
Line 3: What does it smell like?
Line 4: What does it taste like?
Line 5: what does it look like?
Line 6: How does it make you feel?
Confusion is every colour mixed together, messy and indefinite
And it sounds like the fearful cries of chaos.
Confusion smells overwhelming like an 8-course dinner
All on the table at once.
It looks like haphazard trash lining the busy streets on Garbage day,
Making you feel like SCREAMING.
