    It's the best time to use the blades

    and to think. But then again thinking is what causes the blades to move across my skin and form the cuts.

    I coated my heart with winter,

    so the coldness could freeze my feelings and I'm numb from everything especially the pain..

    I usually get home around 11pm

    or midnight, I eat, and go outside with my .38. I go outside to watch what happening in my neighborhood(sometimes walking around the blocks). while outside, I smoke cigarettes and get on my phone(play games, call people, or facebook). I usually go in around 2, take a shower, and...

    I have a bad habit of staying up too late.

    I'd gotten better for a while - lights out and electronic devices off by 11:00pm was Sir's rule - but I've fallen back into the old routine of staying up, sometimes much later. I finally fall asleep but often awaken around 2-2:30am and can't get back to sleep for a long time. I...

    The sweet blinking yr half opened eyes

    when you said good morning.. The warm hugs with soft kisses on the forehead when you said goodnight.. The absence of them, that's hell..

    Story of my life. Maybe I should get a job

    where I can work the graveyard shift. Perhaps sleep would be easier to acquire in the daytime.

    so it's 10:10 and I have no sign of sleep.

    I am staring at the stars on my ceiling wondering if there's a universe above us you know like we're a whole other world they're looking at? I don't know its like my mind function during the day but everything hits me at night

    Good sleep is a rarity

    for me. Most of the time I can't sleep 2 hours straight unless I'm really exhausted or sick. Theres always some reason to get up be it to go to the bathroom, a random sensation of falling, or just my own nightmares keeping me awake. It doesn't help with my depression very much...

    I find my thought processes a lot clearer in

    the stillness of the dark. The hustle and bustle of the day tends to leave my mind reeling, searching for an escape route to make sense of the content I've poured into it. I imagine my mind something like that painting of the screaming face during daylight hours. Wanting to...
