The Whiteness

I read your words 
I try to comprehend
Ideas so complex
my mind starts to bend

I can't stop thinking
I'm stuck in this trap
It's driving me crazy
I want my brain back

Sinking and sinking
I can't take any more
Poetry in motion
eating at my core

Wait I see the answer
I'm not under attack
You provided the whitness
To help guide me back
