Addiction

I am captive to the exhaustion
Caused by lack of sleep;
In the back of my mind,
I know I should leave,
But for now,
All I see is the glow
That radiates from the screen.

For now,
All I hear
Is the hum of the computer
That seeks only to please,
And it does this well.

For now,
All I know
Is life on the screen.

Pathetic.

I'm captive to exhaustion,

sleepless, hollow, restless.

To some extent, I know I should leave,

But for now,

All I see is the glow that radiates from the screen.

For now,

All I know is life in the glare.

Pathetic.

I wrote this poem on a challenge to write a poem about that certain allure computers have for people, rotten addictive devises. ;)
My brother said (regretfully after I entered it) that the first 5 lines would be a good poem in itself, not a bad idea.
