Am I sleeping or am I awake?
I thought I was sleeping but I just keep blinking.
I'm so exhausted.
Why can't I just sleep?
It must be that delicious poison I drink to stay awake 
During those long long nights that never seem to end.
They never seem to work until I try to sleep.
Only then does that scrumptious poison kick in.
That luscious poison knows what it's doing.
It keeps me up for days at a time.
Thursday to Sunday is the most popular.
I won't sleep until Sunday night, if I'm lucky that is.
My body attempts to recover in the next few days.
These attempts are futile of course 
Because Thursday always comes so soon.
And so the cycle begins again with that sweet sweet poison.
