Rising from voluminous depths
Words pass through to fingertips

Momentarily, they beg to stay
For when they flow, they bend and fray

Threatening to splinter my fragile heart
To claw and shred, tearing me apart

Sharp edges reflecting back at me
On virtual paper for the world to see

Purged, leaving room for more and more
An endless flow, a melodious roar

Yet, instead of wreckage left behind
The words untangle busy mind

Guttural cries no longer submerged
Inch by inch, I emerge
