I restlessly glanced at the concrete floor as I smoked away the cigarette I just received from a kind old man. The night was devastatingly cold I tried time and time shut my eyes and go to sleep to sleep but it seemed as though nothing could stop their reviviting. The noises in my enclosure consisted of a loud coffee shop beside me and the discrete footsteps and small talk around me feeling envious of their ability to go home to a warm bed.
