Only By The Night

I stay up late to escape.

I love the night.  You know, some people are morning people and others are just night people. To be honest I'm not really sure which I am but I do love the night. Its the rare time I can truly be alone and just be. No that I am doing anything in particular or anything but its just the stillness I like, the freedom and space. When I look out of the window and see all the lights are off in peoples houses and the roads are empty and quiet and the street lamps are on, it just feels rather mystic, you know.

...Well what do I do when I am up; unfortunately nothing interesting, probably writing. Sometimes I will just surf the interweb in the dark, wondering why I have a twitter page or watch a movie, read a book, anything really, sometimes I'm just chilling out while listening to old school Rock 'n' Roll (most probs. Zeppelin.)

I used to suffer from insomnia  and I don't mean a few restless nights, I mean you want to sleep, you need to sleep but you physically can't, cause your brain just won't turn off.  I'm talking where your eyes are burning and your body is aching with fatigue but your brain just wont let you sleep, no matter how many pills or sedatives you take. Anyway all that is hopefully over now, sometimes I get it now and again but not in the long periods I used to as I can sleep almost normally now but I do miss that time alone I would get.

I do love to be around people but I do enjoy my time by myself. Sometimes I just need space to indulge myself, do something or nothing, you know after a long day I just need that time I get late at night to just...escape.

KINGS OF LEON! Sorry had to post this, can't help it! Only by the Night baby! ^_^

Man I can really relate to this one, I think I'm an Insomniac... been a year and a half now since I graduated, been jumping from one job to another because I can't go to work 8 to 5, Monday to Friday...

"cause your brain just won't turn off. I'm talking where your eyes are burning and your body is aching with fatigue but your brain just wont let you sleep, no matter how many pills or sedatives you take."

and get no sleep.

I really dig Led Zeppelin too you know, I listen to them when I can't sleep... really weird, is it because we're Led Zepp fans and we suffer lack of sleep? hahaha... just kidding.

Anyway, they say that people with these kind of problems have pretty high I.Q.

OMG, I have totally been there too. <br />
Took a while for me to realise that alcohol and pills are not a substantial diet, for maximum health but I have learnt that lesson the hard way.

I also love the evenings !<br />
<br />
The quiet of the darkness and no-one around.... bliss<br />
<br />
I just surf the web or watch a movie

Same here!<br />
Its reasuring to know that others share the same situations.<br />
Thanks for commenting BTW :)

I do the same thing! Wow your sounds just like me! Nice to know I am not alone
