Try, try, try

like a torrent
emotions engulf me
threatening my sanity
splat splat
i sit
I shudder
I shake
I try to take
Deep breaths
No good, I’m being swallowed whole
Eaten alive
Trying, trying, trying…
But unable to speak
Unable to do anything
But flounder and flail
And try again
To swim to the surface
