red is the moment
that rage devours despair
blood dampens water
fire dissolves tears

i was drowning
in an ocean of blue
succumbing to the darkness
sliding into the slipstream

but we can drown
or we can burn

we can collapse
or we can overcome

we can slide between the walls
and disappear into the shadows

or we can claw our way
back into the meaningful

i was drowning in the blue
but now i am devouring in the red
