           >> View all 112 this is just a ramble...I made the mistake earlier of taking a nap and now I'm TIRED and can't sleep..and I can;t even blame it on coffee this time!!! lol anyway..this makes more sense if you ignore the line breaks while reading's supposed to move fast and kind of chaotic :p

soft candle-light
burns red eyes
painfully dry
barely seeing
lashes flutter closed..
whispers caress my skin
jolting me awake
a shadow at the corner of my eye
moving, shifting shape
bleary-eyed I turn..
but it's gone
was it there?
the whispers stir again
nod off to sleep
then snap awake
eyes glazed in a blinded stare
I've lost an hour
or is it three?
time just isn't real
or is that me?
god I'm craving sleep
inner release
some kind of fucking peace
but the shadows
shift again and now I see
what's never there
my thoughts taunting me
but it's not real
it's in  my head
or so I think
I don't know

I think this is wonderful, Danielle. My own sleep problems due to depression have cropped up lately. So I know how hard it is to bring sleep when you really need it. One of my "cures" for insomnia is reading a stack of comic books.

or a taste of classical music

You're fighting sleep..worst thing in the world. Imagine you're on an invisible plane, hear it's droning, relax and look at the fields below, one after another, never ending, don't think just stare.....Victor
BTW why :p..?
