A pointless piece

Endless

On such endless night,

On such endless night, I suddenly snap out,

On such endless night, I suddenly snap out, Of the safe cocoon of numbness,

On such endless night, I suddenly snap out, Of the safe cocoon of numbness, I’d wrapped myself in for days.

I feel strangely disoriented,

I feel strangely disoriented, As I come back to reality,

I feel strangely disoriented, As I come back to reality, My fingers smudged with grey,

I feel strangely disoriented, As I come back to reality, My fingers smudged with grey, My wrist throbs dully.

My eye focuses in a while,

My eye focuses in a while, I see mounds of notes before me,

My eye focuses in a while, I see mounds of notes before me, Textbooks, guides and graphs,

My eye focuses in a while, I see mounds of notes before me, Textbooks, guides and graphs, Strewn across the mahogany top.

My eyes scream out in protest,

My eyes scream out in protest, As I squint in front of the screen,

My eyes scream out in protest, As I squint in front of the screen, Highlighted paragraphs hurt my eye,

My eyes scream out in protest, As I squint in front of the screen, Highlighted paragraphs hurt my eye, Suddenly I can’t breathe.

I've lost count of days,

I've lost count of days, I've lost count of hours,

I've lost count of days, I've lost count of hours, I glance at the clock beside me,

I've lost count of days, I've lost count of hours, I glance at the clock beside me, Two hours to sun rise.

Months ago was it meant to end,

Months ago was it meant to end, This endless run, this endless fight,

Months ago was it meant to end, This endless run, this endless fight, Yet here I am at the starting point,

Months ago was it meant to end, This endless run, this endless fight, Yet here I am at the starting point, The finish line, light-years away.

I feel the tears fill my weary eyes,

I feel the tears fill my weary eyes, No I can’t afford to break,

I feel the tears fill my weary eyes, No I can’t afford to break, Not today, not tomorrow,

I feel the tears fill my weary eyes, No I can’t afford to break, Not today, not tomorrow, For when I break, I’ll give up.

I can’t breathe,

I can’t breathe, As the four walls cage me,

I can’t breathe, As the four walls cage me, As blank pages leer at me, waiting to be filled,

I can’t breathe, As the four walls cage me, As blank pages leer at me, waiting to be filled, As the clock freezes and time dies again.

No, not today.

No, not today. So I take a deep breath,

No, not today. So I take a deep breath, Calm.

No, not today. So I take a deep breath, Calm. Safe.

No, not today. So I take a deep breath, Calm. Safe. Endless.

No, not today. So I take a deep breath, Calm. Safe. Endless. Quiet.

No, not today. So I take a deep breath, Calm. Safe. Endless. Quiet. Numb.

No, not today. So I take a deep breath, Calm. Safe. Endless. Quiet. Numb. The pencil scratches away resigned.
