    Some Nights

    Mostly when I haven't heard from my husband that night and I start to worry. It hurts going to bed alone night after night, knowing that the one you love is in constant danger, that his life coud be taken from you and you'd never get the chance to old them again. Makes me so sad...

    It's so hard to fall asleep

    when all you can do is pull the blankets over your head and weep over the emptiness you feel. I hate not being wrapped in his arms. Not whispering in the dark till sleep captures us. Hate rolling over to an empty bed. Eventually these thoughts just pile up till they avalanche...

    I'm going to bed, I know I'll cry myself to

    sleep. Why? Because I'm a traitor, I lied to myself and my friends! I don't deserve my friends their too good for me.

    Sometimes..

    when I'm really depressed I go to bad, no matter if it's 6PM or 10 PM and just try to fall asleep, but somehow the crying gets worse and worse. I once sprayed deodorant into my eyes, because it makes you stop crying. but it burned like hell. I'm so weird.. but that's me..

    I must admit that I've had sleep problems

    for the past few nights. I almost don't know where to start, but I'll keep this short by saying I have had the worse life lately. And although I stay in my room all day, my mind is adventuring in places of danger. I feel elderly and fragile now, as if the wisdom I have compiled...

    I cry myself to sleep

    and my husband makes no effort to comfort me. He will always say later that he cares but never enough to stay awake. He has caused me so much pain, and then leaves me to cope and grieve on my own. Always later telling me he loves me..but showing it is a different story. I feel...

    Not Anymore, But

    There was a few years back when I was on my early teens (12-15), when I would cry myself to sleep often. It was just a miserable time for me. Thankfully, I no longer feel this way. But I still remember the bittersweet memories. The scars are still there, underneath it all. I'm...

    An Important Release

    Not all the time, but maybe a few times a month. I wait until I am alone, when I can shut the door of my room. I don't even try to stifle it: I let it all out in big, heaving sobs muffled by my pillow so no one will hear. The tears come flooding out and I think to myself how...
