Give Me A Feeling

A Poem

give me a feeling
that I can feel
what are the side effects
of this era
of chasing the screen
and panic abater

push back harder 
against my cold shoulder
this manic elixir 
that keeps me drawn further
beneath what could cut 
my willingness to bleed

give me something 
worth worrying about
but don’t
because running 
will lapse 
all the spinning

I’ve been here before
on the brink of inspiration
but I may have shrunk this year
and it’s on the top shelf
not even partnership 
can reach

give me a heartbeat 
worth swooning about
let’s run ourselves wild
the edge of getting caught 
enough to keep us
awake all night
