Drowning in a sea of raw emotion.
Waves crashing over my head.
Frantically swimming, I try to reach the receding surface.
My lungs are filling up with water,
My limbs are on fire,
A fire that has the chilling touch of ice.
It’s too late, I’ll never make it now.
A hand clutches mine.
Fingers so small, so fragile,
They hardly seem capable of such strength.
Rising out of this ocean,
This vast blue wasteland.
I open my eyes to you.
Your smile. Your carefree laughter.
Those small fingers wrapped around mine.
In a grip so breakable, yet so strong.
I am no longer drowning

I was going through a bunch of old stuff I've written, and I found this. It was written last year during my late days of depression (which have thankfully passed). I hope it sounds alright...I have to say, it's one of the better pieces I've found.
I think it would fall under free verse...I'm not too sure.
