    There's just this sincere comfort you feel

    when you lay down on your bed, and place your head on your pillow, and drift away, into a place where all you've ever wanted is in. Where no one is there to praise you or judge you for all your choices. A place which the world should be like. Because in this life I'm living in...

    This is something I would really like to do.

    I am currently sitting on the floor in my room. I am so tired, physically and mentally. I would love to go into a deep sleep and not wake up. I'm not suicidal but I do have depression. My mind is all over the place at the moment and my only real comfort is sleep.

    I wish I could be put into a medically induced

    coma sometimes. 'Cause when life gets hard or I'm having relationship problems, all I wanna do is go to sleep and wake up when it's safe to open my eyes. .... & It hasn't been safe in a very long time.

    Sometimes I sleep more

    than normal, because my dreams are better than reality.

    Basically all I've been doing lately is going

    to work, coming home, getting high and sleeping. I don't even bother to put makeup on and my hair is an absolute mess. I shower every couple of days. Idk what's wrong with me but something has to change. I not sure how tho.. Nothing feels worthwhile anymore. I don't care about...

    If I could sleep forever,

    then that means I'd have the dream of my life. ♥

    It's sort of what I feel like

    when I go under a general anaesthetic. Feeling like you've slept a year

    I wish that I could constantly live within

    that small window of time where I'm just starting to wake up but consciousness hasn't quite kicked in yet. That's always the time in which its easiest for me to control what I do in my dreams. I could have a perfect life... until I died of dehydration.

    I should probably go to sleep now,

    but all I can do is think and I can't get rest from my own thoughts, I Have a lot of **** on my mind and tonight I've been thinking about everything at once 😣~ I'm driving myself insane, keeping everything bottled up inside, I should really go for another cigarette.

    but then I'd just dream of you.

    last night I dreamt we were all squeezing into a van to go somewhere, on a little road trip. it was comfortable, and strange. we all fit and were laughing the whole way...and then I had to pee, so I woke up

    I'm sitting here in college,

    can't focus at all. I feel so exhausted, more emotionally so than physically. I want to sleep forever

    Don't worry I'm talking about death.

    I mean that I wish my dreams could follow me into reality. Like in my dreams I can do anything, I can be anything. I can be a fierce knight fighting off monsters and dragons laying my life down to prove to the king that he needs me more than I need him. I can be the person that...

    I take pain killers and sleep medications to

    get a good nights rest. I like sleep. It's the only time I feel at peace, I really don't want it to end.

    I remember craving oblivion

    since I was 8 years old, I would get excited to have the weekend off from school just so I could sleep.

    The time would pass quicker.

    I wouldn't have a thing to worry about. But I'd also be stuck with my dreams. There's no winning.

    Since I've started school two weeks ago,

    sleep is something that seems too expensive to have, something that I don't have time for and even on weekends Argh I need a vacation like now.

    Sleeping helps me kill time.

    . It takes me away from all my sad thoughts, stresses, and heartaches.. The only part I dislike.. Is when I have to wake up feeling depressed again...

    Running away from my problems,

    getting away from everything and everyone who makes me feel worthless, and to stop having mixed feelings all the time

    I love to sleep. For a moment

    or two I can forget my problems and just slumber all the way. I can snore away my troubles and drool my worries and anxieties. Time won't stop for me, for who am I? But it pleases me that I can be in a tranquil state where I can be nothing for a second or minute or hour...

    The problem is not wanting to sleep forever,

    it's wanting to never wake up again.

    I wish I could sleep forever.

    I wake up each morning feeling like I have to tolerate the world once more before I can embrace the sweet feeling of REM sleep. Despite the complex and ever changing world around me, I wouldn't mind taking a long break from reality. I think everything is going to be okay...
