TENSIONING

Ratchet me down to the bed frame.
Panic attack set my heart aflame.
Sit down, stand up, take a shower.
Just hold out for one more hour.

Tensioning, tensioning,
stretching, and lengthening.
Tensioning, tensioning,
doubting and questioning.

It wasn’t intentional.
I’m just not conventional. 
I know that you’re skeptical.
This verse was nonsensical. 

Tensioning, tensioning,
stretching, and lengthening.
Tensioning, tensioning,
doubting and questioning

Expression of aggression.
Regression of progression.
Recession, then depression.
Imagining transgressions.

Tensioning, tensioning,
stretching, and lengthening.
Tensioning, tensioning,
doubting and questioning
myself.
