    If I could sleep forever,

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

    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.

    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...

    Occasionally I feel overloaded with multiple

    tasks and I just want to go into a coma and sleep for months on end.

    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

    Sometimes I sleep more

    than normal, because my dreams are better than reality.

    Quite often my dreams are more interesting

    than real life. It feels a lot better to be asleep as well. However, it just so happens that you have to do quite a bit while awake in order to earn that sleep. Besides, it's not bad to thrive in your conscience once in a while.

    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

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Not just sometimes. Every day,

    to wake up is heartbreaking. I used to see the beauty in anything; everything. Waking up was something to look forward to, and sleep was the obstacle in the way of morning bliss. Where does that go? I know people my age who still wake up that way before they go to study or work...

    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...
