Invoiced to writers

Barely time for all the things I love Unusually hastened, Strangely tired ahead of time, I hover, caught Between tread and step Neither going forward nor back, Either touching space or avoiding substance, Soon to be enveloped by undertakings Sufficiently demanding to limit my choice.
