    Why Do I Sleep?

    Because when I'm awake I hurt. When I'm sleeping I don't, and maybe, just maybe, I will have a dream that makes me happy, if only for the second or two I remember it. But it's a great feeling. I wish I could sleep forever.

    Night Terrors

    I sleep prolificly, It's not because I have to, I want to. Waking up is a burden, drifting through the hours and days, living with the 12 other people in my head...is a burden...living with my share of memories...is Hell. My name is Siren, that's my real name, I along with 12...

    I am not interested in a lot of lifes journeys. When I sleep, I feel nothing and I really look forward to it. I put myself to sleep in the middle of the day at least a couple of times a week. In my dreams, I am a free spirit with no fear or anxiety. When I feel the sleeping aids...

    Dreams Are A Diferent Country. They Do Things Differently There.

    When I go bed, I wonder about the dreams. They are an escape, an entertainment. Some will be cameos of futures rolled into one, to be played out in reality, the only clue being the emotion of deja vue. My surroundings can even be a metaphor, like feelings becoming objects.I will...

    Why Not Start By Listening?

    Call it what you will, but there is this part of you – an innate wisdom, if you will – that has tried and tried and tried to get you to stop and fix a part of you that broke a long time ago but you've told yourself that you either don't have enough money, don't have enough...

    When Depression Hits

    I do this when depressed. I just shut down and go to sleep that way I don't have to deal with pain. I sleep a lot when depressed. I actually feel tired like all the time like I just ran a marathon. If I could I'd probably sleep my life away but that's no way to live so I just...

    To Escape

    I sleep constantly, yet im always tired, because i want to go to sleep again to forget about reality. Dreams are an escape and even when i dont dream, its just painless darkness that i dont even know was happening until i wake. I honestly believe the best thing that could happen...

    How To Trick Your Mind

    Its The Best Time

    When I'm asleep no one is there to judge me. I can dream and if its bad I can wake up and start it all again. I can relax and feel safe and know that for the 5 hours sleep I usually get I'm free of any type of thing that brings me down.  And when I was younger and I died in my...

    I've Been Doing Better Lately...

    I've always enjoyed sleeping more than most people.  I was the kid who slept in late past noon on the weekends and was grumpy if I was woken up.  I never saw sleeping as a bad thing since everyone always told me I needed to get more sleep.  I was a notorious...

    Unhappy With Where You Are?

    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)
