I'm a Mindless Machine

My eyelids are drooping
My body feels gloopy
I'm so tired I could fall flat on my face

My arms are wet noodles
I can't even doodle
And my legs won't even take one single step

My mind is moving slowly
I think it's going backwards
It's falling behind in the human race

The computer in front of me
It's a little mind-numbing
Swallowing up my brain completely whole

My fingers are dropping
Like bird frass on the keyboard
I can't keep myself from stopping

Someone please help me
I'm glued to the screen
Someone yank me away
I'm a mindless machine

This is what I feel when I'm at the computer. Whether it's on facebook, working, or writing... even messing on photoshop.
