Insomnia (pt.1)

As I lie here
Wide awake
I wish I could sleep
It’s midnight for goodness sakes

But no,
My mind begins to wander
It strays away and thinks of situations
That always make me wonder

I can’t sleep
To put it bluntly
So tell me
Why this happens monthly?

I twist and turn
In my bed
Hoping, just hoping
I can go to sleep in my head

Alas, the sun is already
threatening to rise
There’s no more rest
For my poor little eyes

Another day,
Another night
Insomnia is my companion
The one that holds me tight

I read this in your thread the other day and it’s really nice! Though that line β€œmy poor little eyes” makes me think of eyes being squinted :rofl: But it is a good poem! :heart:

Trueee, but even after years of learning this the hard way, I still open my eyes wide when I wake up and then suffer from temporary blindness :expressionless: :rofl:

Oh no! I wipe my eyes first and then slowly open my eyes XD

I rarely do that because I wake up so suddenly! :joy: A few weeks back I literally hopped out of bed and tripped all over my room before proceeding to fall against the door :rofl:

Oh gosh >.<

I’m like a cat, a few stretches, then relax for a bit and then I’m off~

That is so nice :sob: I rarely get to sleep/wake so peacefully, it’s all a race to get out of the dreamworld for me

Aw, how so?

I can’t sleep (hence… insomnia) so I’m always extra sleepy in the mornings

I’d kill to feel sleepy :joy: Nightmares, almost always, except on the nights I don’t sleep and a rare dream here and there, so I’m usually wide awake all the time :rofl:

Eek- I never actually have dreams anymore. When I can’t sleep I just pull out my handy dandy notebook from under my pillow, along with my pen and flashlight and start writing until I start to feel sleepy XD

:eyes: No dreams? Can’t imagine that … I think the only times I never dreamt, or don’t remeber it at least, was when I was sick or just came back from a competition lol I do try to fall asleep, I turn off the lights, put on some music, and then I’ll end up just staring up at my ceiling until someone’s alarm goes off and realize I spent hours just thinking about random things when I should be sleeping xD this took a while to upload

Oof-

I’m starting to miss dreams, but at the same time, the darkness is very comforting. I may have some dreams from time to time but they’re rare and it’s all blood and gore

Blood and gore doesn’t make for much of a good dream xD but I guess anything is better than a nightmare :rofl: The few dreams I’ve had are so weirrddd and full of boys with pretty pretty eyes :heart_eyes: and colours :joy: My mom said I mumbled something about a silver lake and Fridays once when I slept in my parents’ room :laughing: I had no recollection whatsoever of that though

But aren’t dreams just the procession of all your thoughts during that day…? If so… cough :eyes:
fades out again

Are they really? :eyes: I think my days are mundanely normal enough for equally mundane dreams :joy:

I’m not actually sure, ahah. But that’s just how I’ve always thought of it :upside_down_face:

xD My dad says the same thing though so I think it’s just a matter of belief? If it isn’t … then damn I have one messed up mind :rofl:
