Ocean of Words

Salt water rushing through my hands,
I’m drowning in an ocean of tears
while the papers bleed into one another.
Wide open eyes sting with the force
of a swollen mind covering my vision
with pages of memories I should forget.
Hit in the head with the ball meant to
sink me in the emotions filling the tank
at the carnival of all things tearing me down,
my writing carousel has become submerged.
