Revival

That one line,
it just replays,
over and over,
and i flinch,
shake my head,
and continue to type.
and then it creeps up on me,
like the darkness when you close your eyes,
inevitable yet comforting,
yet dark,
i flinch, shake my head
and continue to type.

click, click, click,
legs shaking,
stop creeping up on me,
flinch, squint, blink,
head shaking side to side,
i need to type.
music lets me drift,
but the pause between songs
helps the safe passage of
that one line,
that one line, half a sentence,
and i flinch, blink and squint.
