    Dreams

    Occasionally I wake up crying from my dreams. A recent one was of my grandma. She passed away in December 2011. She raised me from the time I was born, and was my rock. I love it when I dream about my grandma, but it also makes me very sad. The latest dream was kinda weird...

    Not So Much Anymore.

    But, after my dad died I would have many dreams where in the dream it was my mother that killed my dad and his ghost was trapped somewhere, and a bunch of other really weird stuff and I would cry so hard in the dream I would wake up and find that I was crying for real.

    Dreaming

    In my sleeping mind I see you there.  Sitting next to me the way we used to do, the way we used to be, but you are doing nothing. A statue in my dreams, not speaking, not moving. The night before we were going camping. You hate camping, but we were going because we had...

    Ah, there's nothing quite like waking up to the

    muffled sounds of your own sobbing... I sometimes wake up crying, though it happens less frequently of late. It is not every night my mind can conjure up something capable of putting me to tears. But it does happen from time to time. I always feel so pathetic when this happens...

    I Didn't

    I didn't wake up crying this morning, but I did wake up with a sadness in my heart. I don't know how to explain it except to say that  I felt as though something was missing. I looked at the empty spot in my bed next to me and knew that was it. The problem with that is, it...
