    Terrified

    If I see a scary movie, I let my mind run away with itself. I saw "Cloverfield" over the weekend. Now I am totally and utterly freaked out. I had to sleep alone the night after watching this movie, and I had to leave my tv on so it wasn't dark in my room. I literally go...

    Block Out the World

    We do this sometimes just being silly.  Pull the blankets up over our heads and it's just us...the rest of the world simply doesnt exist....

    In the middle of this morning around an hour

    before I wanted to get up, I was awoken by loud banging and shouting, I peered put my window to see what all the commotion was and it was an angry man smashing a front door in with a wheelybin and cursing at someone, I guessed a female. It brought back a rush of terror in me and...

    I Don't Think Its "Hiding"

    but I like to be covered up when I sleep.  Extra pillows usually do the trick.  I love to sleep on and under pillows.

    When there are monsters lurking in every shadow

    and strange noises coming from the street, what else would one do? Call me childish, but these things called blankets protect me from murderers, I swear! Or at least my most frightening imagination ;)

     I hide under my blankets when I cry. I pretend I'm asleep. I don't like people seeing me cry.

    Nice.

    Sometimes, when your life gets too tough and you need someone special to be, under a blanket is usually my favourite place to be. I somehow feel alone with my thoughts and so on. It's a nice feeling.

    the bills need to be paid, my brother is being a b****, job rejection e-mails and letters filling the mailboxes, etc, etc, the first thing I do is take off my shoes and dive under the covers. Accompanied by a scream into the pillow.
