18 Seconds

I think I forgot how to write
how to line up
all the letters I know
or at least
know how to use
which is probably only 23 or 24 out of all 26.

It's as though
when I was in an environment
without writing
and reading
I had to fill the space with my own words.
But now,
that I am surrounded
smothered
drowned in them.
I've lost my flow
that used to come
spilling
spilling
spilling out.
