How to write all of me in less than 10 seconds?

Hmm, let me think... how about DREAMER?

Yup. That works.

PROMPT: 25 Words

Weary arms tread the frigid water, blood pumping, breath ragged. 

            "You'll never make it."
                    "You're weak."
    "You are going to die."

My head goes under.
My hurt attempt to describe the battles in my mind. 

I've been taking a little bit of an unannounced hiatus for some time, dearest apologies for doing so. Life in general has been quite rough and I'm trying to figure a lot of things out, so bare with me and my absences if you will. At this time, I am unsure just how active I will be or just how much of my writing I will share with the community, but if time grants it, I'll come by every once in a while just for another hello. I will continue to answer to comments when I can, and interact with you all, forgive me for any delays. I wish I could explain further reasons for leaving/not leaving for some time, but unfortunately it is simply a personal battle I must give my attention to. 
Is this goodbye? Far from it, although in a sense it is a farewell of sorts. This community has been so dear to me and the kind words, the support and love, the beautiful, amazing, talented writers and readers who've stumbled upon these words, I am eternally grateful for. I've found a wonderful home in all of you, and in all delicately written words. A million thanks are most certainly in order. To all of you.
I do not intend on disappearing entirely, although if anyone would like to keep in touch, that can definitely be arranged.
If not, it has truly been a pleasure.

Thank you for being the peace that keeps the breath in my lungs.
<3 <3 <3

    Wow. And I thought it was impossible to write a story in under 25 words. I love how much emotion you put in so little words

    It’s always important to return to reality at some point, all of us on here have to remember there’s a life outside WtW! I seem to forget it too sometimes, though I wish we all could talk like this without a screen. I wish you luck and hope you’ll come back, if not good luck!
