    It's Like the World Is Asleep, Except For Me

    Being upset at night is the worst feeling in the world to me. It's dark, it's quiet, everyone's asleep... I'm all alone, wide awake, with my destructive thoughts/behavior. It can feel overwhelmingly lonely.

    I try to sleep, yet my body won't let me.

    I close my eyes, the fear surrounds me. I hear my heart, the beating loud. The shadows come, they scream and shout. I allow the darkness, it makes me smile. Yet the sound, it seems so vile. My tears make the dark have some shine. But my loneliness turns it off, to make it more...

    It's Not Actually Sadness...

    ...but when I'm alone at night and I'm laying in my bed I start to get all panicky. I just think about all the bad things in life, everything that could go wrong, everything that has gone wrong, everything that I did wrong... Just so many thoughts that come on to me and I can get...

    Petrified

    I am so scared of my own thoughts. All of my doubts, insecurities and flaws seem to be written in white, shining from the black walls that trap me inside my room. I'm able to think. How stupid I am. I am able to concentrate on just why I'm not good enough. I am my own worst enemy...

    It Is a Lonely Time...

    Going home alone... There are friends that care... and relatives that care... but nothing can compare to the full loving embrace of someone who wants nothing more than to hold you just for one more night.

    Can anyone tell me why it is, that I am so sad about losing my relationship? I know it wasn't meant to be...I felt it before the break-up, and I know he felt it too. It was a long time coming, I was constantly frustrated by our relationship and I honestly...

    Nighttime

    At night, I'm always miserable. All of my problems come back to me then for some reason. However, night is also the best time for me to think about things. That's why I stay up late and let myself be miserable. It benefits me in the end.

    I Am Tonight

    After the news I just heard, as soon as I go to bed I know it's going to hit me. I am sad every night. It's too much time to think. I try not to, but I can't help it when I can't sleep. I hate insomnia

    I'm having one of those nights,

    but I promised my bestie I won't commit suicide or cut and try to recover with her, so it's so frustrating, I want to cut so badly. So I'm sorry for everyone hearing about how I'd like to kill myself or cut.

    Anyone Knows Why?

    All day I am okay but at nights I feel really sad. I don't like being around anyone then. I just cut myself off from everyone. This really irritates my sister when I am quite. Sometimes during the day she complains I am too playful and at nights she said I am too serious and she...

    I'm strong, I'm weak I smile,

    I weep I laugh as they call me childish and a freak. I never knew sadness could run so deep.

    Never-ending Cycle.

    It seems that I always end up getting really sad late at night/early in the morning. I used to go to bed every night at 9, but since that cycle has broken...and now nights are times for me to brood, to hate myself. I'm a very academic-minded college student. Nights I usually...

    It Happens Suddenly

    Usually just after around two hours of studying or reading.  I sit and it is getting late evening and it sweeps over me.  I try to redirect it.  Going for a walk, watching a movie, but I return to it.  It knows it can catch up with me no matter what.  And...

    I'm sad, and it's night,

    but that's to be expected in a group like this. I've realized years ago that it happens like flicking on a light switch, so I am certain it's a chemical/biological thing, as there's almost never any direct reason for it. So yea. Sad and just thought I'd throw this out.

    loneliest time

    I hate the silence.. I hate the darkness. Before they didn't bother me much at all but now I'd do anything to escape it. I always am the last person to go to bed at night. I go to bed like 2 or more hours after everyone else. Those hours where I'm on my own are the worst. I...
