coiled

i am coiled
wound
tighter and tighter
as the brass gears
in my mind
keep turning
one click
at a time
my heart is
beating outside
of my chest

the thoughts
turn
with the gears
tarnishing
the brass
until every
darkness
feels magnified
i cannot
find my center
i cannot
find my calm

i am a
time bomb
and the timer
is counting down
and i need
someone
to cut
the red wire
before i
explode
