    I coated my heart with winter,

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

    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...

    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 don't sleep very easily.

    It takes me forever to fall asleep. It's like I'm tired but I can't sleep. I wish I was able to actually get some sleep because I usually only get 3-5 hours of sleep daily and most of it happens during the actual day.

    i just can't go to sleep earlier.

    I sleep 4 to 5 hours per night during the week, because i've got to get up to work. At weekends I sleep forever!

    I remembered when I watched The Hills Have Eyes.

    I couldn't sleep for a week. After that, I still had to have the lights on and door locked.

    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...

    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.

    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..

    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

    Or the entire night. Chronic insomniac,

    here. No matter how tired I am, I cannot fall asleep for at least a few hours after crawling into bed. Since the first week of May, I've been lucky to get five hours, usually from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. More commonly, I only get two hours. Most nights, I get absolutely nothing. Two...

    I can't sleep because I see

    and hear things. I'll see faces or shapes that are not there, or I always feel like someone is watching me. Whenever I'm alone, I always have a feeling that someone is following me or watching me, and I have to look around or behind me every 5 or 10 seconds.

    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...

    I could sit outside all night looking up at the sky. It's nice, seeing all of its stars and searching for shooting stars or different constellations. It's beautiful.
