Eventually the tiredness had to break, right?
No way he could be this tired for this long.
Everything seemed such an effort, even blinking!
Reaching for his sixth Monster, he pounded it back.
Going to be a long shift tonight. Good thing he had a twelve pack.
Yet he wondered if that would be enough.
Blinking, trying to bring it into focus, but fails
Leaving the image muddy and obscured
Unable to clarify what was happening, she put on her glasses
Realizing that being old was the only thing she could see clearly in the morning
Darwin hefted his heavy crossbow and took aim
Randy was distracting the wyrm with his stupid antics
Allowing Darwin a chance to strike the killing blow
Got to hit it through the eye and into the brainpan
One in a million shot, even at the best of times, but Darwin knew he was better than that
Never counted on the beast blinking. Darwin never felt the flames
Stars stare without blinking
Putting me ill at ease as I float here
And wonder if I will ever feel solid ground beneath my feet again
Can’t believe those brilliant blue skies are so long gone
Everything out there is so black
To be an interstellar adventurer
Really should be so much more exciting
And it was two years ago, but now?
Viewing the infinite from inside my craft
Everything just seems so small and too large at the same time
Leaving me to wonder why I booked this flight
Barb looked at the empty white screen in front of her
Little cursor blinking, mocking her inability
Of course earlier in the day she had pages and pages of story
Couldn’t remember a single sentence now
Killing her motivation completely
Cody hit the wall, then he hit the Monster Energy Drink
Rallying his remaining reserves, Cody began to code some more
As he pounded the keys, Cody realized he was even thinking in code
Still, he could feel the friction of lethargy begin to slow his neurons
He doubled down, blinking away at the ever growing wave of exhaustion
Everything became a blur, but Cody pushed even harder
Didn’t realize a keyboard could leave such an imprint on his drool drenched cheek
