Confusion

Confusion is all the colors of the rainbow
It sounds like that mysterious creaking noise you can’t identify
It tastes like a sour cupcake or a sweet pickle
It smells like a strange stench wafting out from the trash can
It looks like a striped cheetah or a spotted tiger
Confusion makes you feel like you are falling into a jumble of thoughts

Nicely done! I liked when you said "sour cupcake or sweet pickle", that would be very confusing! When you said "strange stench wafting out from the trash can", I could almost smell it! Confusion is quite a strange sensation, and you have captured it well.

I really like this one..for each poet, I think confusion is a bunch of different things. I like how you took your own things, and put them together.

I thought this poem was really confusing but had a lot of similies. what is your reason for writing this?

I wrote this because for English we had to write a poem about an emotion and use the senses to describe what that emotion is like. So I used similes to describe confusion, like how it is like a noise you cannot identify.

We like all of your descriptions and similies. And you involed Your senses which made it easier to relate to confusion. Nice work :)

overall it was very well thought out and gave me a good idea of what confusion feels like.
