Tingle Crackle

It is a tingle crackle

That races up my spine

An alert to say: Go fix it!

Hooked up to the line

 

Instead of sitting with it

I race to do! To make!

In silence of creation

The terrors start to shrink

 

Recoiling back so slightly

Mildly concussed

But when I reach achievement

Come crashing in a rush

 

To drown again, I work again

Move and make and go

A constant losing game I play

Will never drown the cries below

 

So here I sit, and sit and wait

And face my own true shackles

Threatening to take me down

Come for me tingle crackle
