Name me any color you like:
Lay me in a bed of rare papyrus
among prismatic swirls of paisley
nesting sweetly into each other

and fill me in.
When finally your epicene brush lifts
from the page, we’ll cry like fools,
licking our tears of hue and tint
from our rapturous faces.


For inspiration I took the first four song titles from one of my playlists and incorporated them into a poem. The titles were:

Fix You by Coldplay
Any Color You Like by Pink Floyd
Fool To Cry by The Rolling Stones
Fill Me In by Craig David

This still needs fleshing out but I think it has a fairly good  beginning.
