Systolic: Master, what is my future?

A pulsation, you were!
A contraction, you have been!
A hourglass, you are!

To systolic I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like compression
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using abbreviation

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

Can I pass a pulse, disclosed so people might see
Terse exalting summaries, crudely informing, and oh but imparted free?
Season or shrunk seem all too apparent. But is pension?
Recession, entry? - or casualty, fettling? Oops! I deserted tension!
I reckon reopening and otherwise incomings, but plainly ought I
- blurt meanings so - notations fetched with computers spry?
