    What Is That?

    Sleep.  What is it?  I haven't had a good nights sleep in a looooooooooong time.  I miss sleep.   I need sleep.  My nerves are shot.  And yet, I can't seem to do it.  Frustrating as hell I tell you!

    I want to sleep for an eternity.

    . And be put to rest. Without having to go another day. Facing others. Smiling. Pretending. I will do anything Anything so that I can sleep in peace. Forever.
