Like ants in a colony

Electro convulsive therapy
which I felt when it rocketed through me,

The buzzing in my ears went on and on for years
and sparks flew from my fingertips, my eyelashes
and when I touched your lips with mine?
static all the time,
no propulsion see
and I blame it on the therapy.

although it did give to me
colours in electric

And I no longer
scurry, worry or
feel sorry for myself.
