To string words together
I search deep in my mind,
diving into the murky depths,
I struggle as the current,
merciless, grasps my ankles
and tugs me down,
detailed despair is drowning me,
I churn the water around me
desperate for air
I drag metaphors and similes to surface
and splutter out
unwanted memories
that stain the virgin paper
with blue.

The End
