I Don't Want to Get Out of Bed Today.

A Type of Tired That Sleep Won't Fix.

Mirrored Hallways in Dark Dreams - An Original Glitch Art Piece.

I don't want to get out of bed today,

I just want to sleep my troubles away.

I'm held in bondage by lethargy,

I've done nothing but laze, yet I've no energy.

I just need a new method of decompression,

I haven't yet found anything that can cure this depression.

I know not to trust a facial expression,

I'm always smiling, but if the lights are on, even I'm guessing.

I turned regression into my biggest obsession,

I've become a ghost of myself, seeking repossession.

I always feel like I'm doing an impression,

I've made every moment a performance of faux self-expression.

I lay my head down hoping tomorrow is better than yesterday,

I don't want to get out of bed today.
