    Don'T Wake Me

    I wish I could just sleep for the rest of my life. Just go into an unexplained coma. Dream for eternity and finally be in peace let the voices in my head have a treaty signing date a few models, be rich famous, and have anything my heart desires or my head can think of. Be in...

    I want to fade into nothingness.

    I want to feel the bliss of sleep for eternity. I don't want to die. Dying means feeling nothing. In which case I'm already dead. I want to feel the false security of someone I love wrapping their arms around me while I sleep. Someone who I love yet can't be with.

    Too Much...

    I just want to sleep all day and not face all the problems in life. School sucks, so much pressure is put upon my shoulders. I feel like it is my responsibility to lift the world... I give up on life, but at the same time I don't. If I do, I'm screwed. If I don't I'm still...

    Sometimes I wish I could. Reality sets in when I realize all of the things I would not be a part of. Such as grandchildren.

    Just Want To Stay Asleep.

    I have nothing to look forward to in life. I hate work and my college classes. If i could stay in my bed 24/7 i probably would. I know it sounds terrible but thats how i feel.

    Sleep is so addicting.

    When I'm sleeping I don't have to think about anything, I can just be warm and cozy in my bed for hours and hours and hours. It's the best way to avoid all my problems. Sleeping is addictive. When i'm having a bad day, I come home and go straight to bed. When i'm feeling down...
