    Escape the Rules...

    Escape the rules of a society that does not understand me to write about sex, music and dreams. I stay up to feel alive and say F! YOU to this suffering I'm enduring. I stay up late because I'm worried for myself and my loved ones. I stay up late to get wasted. I can and I am.

    I Need to Escape the Daytime Stimulas

     Yep, when I'm under pressure, I sleep all day and stay awake at night so I can enjoy uninterrupted peace and quiet. No phone calls, no knocks on the door....no-one to bother me. I like my own company !

    I Never Want To Get Into My Bed But Love It When I Am There

    I am the worst kind of night owl. I don't know, I will just find anything to do instead of get into my bed. But once I am there I don't want to leave once I am awake and I curse myself. I wish my morning self and evening self could compromise.

    3:16am, Monday. December 22.

    This unusually rare for me to be awake at this time. But about 12hrs ago, I was at Starbucks and ordered a coffee, forgetting the effects I would have from it later. My brain is wide awake and my eyes feel no sense of tiredness. For the past couple of hours, While I've been...

    Staying Up...

    It's great to be alone. Don't get me wrong, I like people as much as anyone, but it's so nice to unwind and not have to think of anything or anyone else.   Just me and the stars in the sky.

    Without a Doubt....

    The quiet at night is sometimes the only peace I get.  Finally everyone's asleep:  the tv is no longer blaring, the phone stops ringing and I can sit in silence and just be.  My absolute fave time of day is when the last of the lights go off in the house and I get...
