You have distracted me from my creative process (A poem)

Getting closer to the truth with this one…

Your persistent, insistent pressure
has driven me to distraction
face down on the pillow
screaming silently
for relief

The walls surrounding me
witness this small spectacle
without comment
though perhaps
not without judgement

Meanwhile, I count the ticks
that comprise each eternal second
knowing that the moment will pass
but dreading
the time it will take
