    Why Cant I Forget You?

    Its been many many months since I've replied to your texts. How I wish I could respond to them. I miss you. Wicked. But I know you're better off without me. You were my master, my lover, my man. I was torn so hard. But I know that I am not the sub you wanted. I could never...

    it's strange i always find it hard to fall

    asleep at night, yeah, since the day we broke up. I'm afraid of sleeping alone at night so what i usually do is to find someone and talk, just about anything that comes in my mind to not make myself feel lonely. I am sick and tired of this feeling. I dislike being alone...

    No Sleep

    It seems things never seem to be settled before I tuck myself between the sheets. I worry about what cup I left unwashed, if the doors are locked, if I blew out the candle. I worry about what my husband did that day, or who. I worry about what bill comes up next and if I mailed...

    I was literally going crazy with thoughts last

    night. Letting them get to me. I would get to work and the few I had one would call off. We don't make enough money to support ourselves let alone an 8 month old baby. I miss my sister who passed away. Well going to bed at 1:30 and waking up at 5 actually didn't phase me much. I...

    I have insomnia almost every night.

    I used to be bullied in school and those kids would make me ashamed of myself because I was different. All the mean things they said to me back in those days comes back in my head almost every night. I starting to forget, and I guess thats a start. There's a start for everything...

    Every Night

    I analyze everything, perhaps over analyze. I think all the time at night and then I don't sleep and this will go on for days at a time-insomnia. I really enjoy sleeping, but it's hard for me not to think.

    Restlessness.

    I can't sleep when I have a lot of things on my mind... So pretty much every night. It takes me hours upon hours to fall asleep, and when I finally do, there's no guarantee that I'll stay in a comatose state. Half of the time, I'll end up dreaming something crazy, waking up, and...
