Climax - Poem by Sheridan Spence

A personal catharsis

Awaits trembling fingers,

And release is imminent

While it lingers,

Though never permanent.


Firm strokes,

Scratches of need

Alternate on blank space

Paying no heed

To the frenzied pace.


A building of sensation,

A numbing tingle stirs

Once idle fragments –

Now prone nerves

Listlessly waiting to be spent.


And then – gliding –

A cessation:

An overflowing explosion

Of mind and spirit

In release of tension.


Satisfied toes curl as the poem is writ.
