No Sleep

By @zozo-ran16

Sleepless

The sun, up once again, no sleep, never any sleep. A slow day with nothing but the hammer battering my head day in day out, sometimes hard and sometimes soft. Eyes made of steel forever open, never blinking except for the occasional bug. Time wasted in silent exhaustion, laying on the couch in unmoving pain. Time for work, need to work to pay the bills which I missed, no gas. Very cold at home, forever bone gnawing, muscle cramping, blood freezing sleepless home. A painful experience, wrist on fire trying to start the car, won’t start. Legs of cement and sand, gonna have to walk, it’s so far away I must hurry. Running to work with a body feeling like it’s being ripped apart. . . painful. Checking my watch, not going to make it, I’ll be late. Can’t run anymore and I’ve got three miles to go. Two hours late. When I get there I head to my desk in the back where I’m alone and in wanted, I hate being an office drone, have to suck up to everyone, never living for myself but for others. This sucks. Ten minutes went by and the boss shows up tapping his foot in anger, he points at his office and said now. Got a thrashing and told I had no more chances . . . final warning, couldn’t explain myself, my words don’t mean anything. Went back to work with hatred, only for a minute then it was just sadness. I feel so useless, like I’m nothing. Compared to the rest of the universe I am nothing, just a smidge in time, faint to none importance, a blink of an eye to a god.
