Blink.

I tell myself to blink

inbetween bursts

of staring contests with the screen.

Another hour gone –

One, two, three, four, five a.m.

Time’s slipped through my fingers,

yet the machine that has captured my attention

burns on.

My room is illuminated

by the dull light of the screen,

which is a little too close

to my tired eyes,

and my brain slowly,

so slowly,

shuts down,

willing me to sleep.
