"By The Time"

By the time the light forces its way into the room, I've already been awake for hours.

By the time my feet touch the floor, I've already imagined the worst scenarios of the day to come.

By the time I'm out the door, I've already fantasized a dozen better alternatives.

By the time I sit at my desk, I'm already in a foul mood.

By the time I leave for lunch, i'm frustrated at how I've wasted the last several hours.

By the time I finish work for the day, I'm naively hoping that I might still be productive later.

By the time I get home, I'm shutting down inside. 

By the time I go to bed, I'm mentally exhausted. 

By the time I go to sleep, I'm already dreading the day to come.
