*ding*

*ding*
bzzzt bzzt bzzzzt
i crack my eye, gauging the time by the temperature

*ding*
bzzzt bzzt bzzzzt
i roll my arm to the side, un-kink my elbow from under the pillow

*ding*
bzzzt bzzt bzzzzt
i've found the damn thing, squeezing at the sides searching for a button to press
searching for something

*ding*
bzzzt bzzt bzz--
finally. silenced.
i crack the other eye, and focus my vision on the all too bright black mirror as the screen illuminates, a scoreboard to my social success, a window to my thoughts, a tether to my world and the notification tells me i have full stamina in a game i'd forgotten i downloaded some lonely night forgotten - certainly spent staring into the same void

a sigh as i close my eyes and try to fade back to black, to focus my thoughts on sleep, rest, relaxati--

*ding*
bzzzt bzzt bzzzzt
the worst part?

*ding*
bzzzt bzzt bzzzzt
the worst part is that i do it again.
