lately, i've been losing sleep
wait--has it been lately?
because i see another story with eyes sunken deep
i think it's been years
when i couldn't discern between minutes and hours
yeah, it must've been years
when i jolt awake from cold showers
a break from my nightly routines is what i need
fingers tapping across a black keyboard
answer the prompt, calculus, and a scene in hamlet to read
i need to stop
and rest my head on my pillow
to close my eyes and drift away is what i opt
but the years of the past refute
how can i stop now
should i let my works disintegrate into ashes and soot?
