Loss for Words

I know I should say something,
more true, more real, “I know,”
I should dig deeper,
look for the right words
so I could somehow string together
all these feelings inside
I can’t seem to find
the meaning for, as though,
“I could bob for apples,”
face submersed, mouth open,
eyes closed tight, as I try to collect,
and blindly with an overbite,
wondering, how long can I stay here
and hold my breath till I die?
