To a Nub

This constant need for validation
Nervous & neurotic
Counting thumbs & friends
& seconds shed
& minutes eternity
Mental patience
Seeking asylum
in a silent scream
Contained/Confined
Chewing fingers to a nub
Craving cavities
just to be full/filled
All grown up &
still a child
Frozen in memories
A fossil, a relic
a wristwatch
out of time
Cracked hands
from grasping at straws
Nervous & neurotic
This valid constant need
