I’m tired with blood shot eyes
No one sees, only I
Sleep is for the weak
The bed and sheets I shall burn
Retrieving energy in return
My arms form into talons
I rose as if I’ve fallen
Tension acts on my intestines
I feel like it has gone in all directions
Stay up, this is definitely not new
I must finish before this assignment is due.

The motive of procrastination is what inspired me to write this piece.
