Clarity in the Dark

The words float in my mind
Like a river trickling by
Whispers in my ear
Here and then gone

The pain is building inside
Shouting seems like a solution
But it is denied
I feel it bubbling beneath the surface
The red of anger
The black of fear

The haze of red dims
Blackness taking over

Surrounded and crowded
A speck of light
The pen is grabbed
A life line
Held tight with my might
As the words appear
The fear disappears
