In the Room by James Thomson.

Part 4 of 13.

It is so many hours

ago—
The lamp and fire were both alight—
I saw him pacing to and fro,
Perturbing restlessly the night.
His face was pale to give one fear,
His eyes when lifted looked too bright;
He mutter’d; what, I could not hear:
Bad words though; something was not right.

The table said, He wrote so long
That I grew weary of his weight;
The pen kept up a cricket song,
It ran and ran at such a rate:
And in the longer pauses he
With both his folded arms downpress’d
And stared as one who does not see,
Or sank his head upon his breast.

    The glass from the previous part continues talking. It says that many hours have passed since the lamp and fire were lit and when they were it saw the man who lives here walking around the room restlessly. At that time the man's face was pale and he kept talking to himself. It seems he said bad things and the glass could see that he was not acting normal. Then the table speaks and says the man had spent a lot time writing on it. It seems the man was distressed because he wrote quickly and for a long time and when he paused his writing he looked very stressed, as though some internal struggle plagued him.
