i haven't slept for two days

Tired eyes wander over foggy plains, unfocused but searching.

The overcast sky casts a dreamy gloom over a face with sunken sockets and dry lips.

The ghost of the scent of coffee lingers on the walls.

Heavy lids begin to droop like a sinking life boat and the white noise begins to fade.
