Stuck in Solitude

Looking all around
Only seeing papers and textbooks
Too much to do
My mind spinning out of control
Thinking about articles that need to written about, notes that need to be fixed, and papers written
Knowing I need to get it all done within two hours

I am sitting here surrounded
While I'm distracted writing this
Wishing I could take a simple nap
Knowing I can't sleep at work
Wishing someone would walk into the enclosed hidden room
Only me in the room for the past hour
Hearing the noise of the cafeteria
Fighting the urge to go insane
Knowing what solitude feels like
Two days a week for a couple hours
Bored out of my mind
Wanting someone anyone to come in
Can't wait until I'm out of solitude for the day

The one left behind
