I wrote this based on a different picture then the one I am posting with it. However, they are similar. A submarine emerging from water as it shoots to plooms of yellow from its cannons at a doomed battle ship. I hope you can get my imagery.

Blue, blue all around me,

Blue in the sky, blue in the ocean.

Surrounded on all sides, all dimensions,

But from the blue something black.

It emerges, turning white the waves around it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A ploom of white smoke erupts from it.
The ship shakes, I hear screams,

The screams drown under the second barrage.

A yellow flower explodes on the deck,

And all are drawn to the blue as it capsizes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Red, red all around me,
Red in the sky, red in the ocean.
As I sink it enters me,
Into my mouth, into my body, into my lungs.

I slow down, go limp, all around me, black.
