sleep
jade ...the default state of conciousness. not the cushy, dreamy type you experience in your flannel nightie cuddling with your pillow, but a torpid awareness overlaid with daydreams and attachments, desires and needs, worries and fears, that distract most of us from each pregnant moment. sleep ...contrasting with wake. 980906

jennifer Girl is over at Boy's house, visiting for some reason. It is early in the morning, possible 6 or 7 am. Boy, just stepped out of the shower, in semi-rumpled clothes, notices Girl still sleeping in his bed. Girl is obviously enjoying sleep. He instantly becomes quiet, moving slowly to the side of the bed. He moves in very close to Girl's face, almost as if to kiss her. He waits, but she doesn't open her eyes. He pokes her once in the cheek, still no response. He slowly moves to the foot of the bed, pulling back the covers from her feet, he is almost about to tickle themÖ
Girl: "Do you want to die?"
Boy: "Not particularly, but you have to get up."
Girl (looks at clock, groans): "Shit, God isn't even up at this hour."
Boy laughs.
Girl: "Jee-sus, what perked you up this morning? Rock Hudson marathon on E!? Or did you really sell your soul?"
Boy: "You'll never know, now get up."
Boy sits down next to Girl on bed.
Girl: "Fuck off, you." (Pulls the pillow over her head)
Boy bounces on the bed, trying to annoy her to the point were she has no choice but to get up.
Girl: "You'd better cut that out. Wouldn't want your mother to think we were fucking up here, now would we?"
Boy: "She'd be delighted just to know that you were sleeping in the same bed with me last night"
Girl: "You told her?"
Boy: "Yes, and I referred to you as the 'daughter-in-law'. Any problems?"
Girl (flips him off): "No wonder she hates me."
Boy (pulling at the covers): "No she doesn't. Now, come on, we are going to be late"
Girl: "Then go, I have my own car. I'll come when I'm awake."
Boy: "And when will that be?"
Girl: "Quarter till tomorrow."
Boy (lays across her, still on the bed): "Don't disappoint me. Come one, get up."
Girl (struggling to breathe): "And how am I supposed to do that if you're on me? Get off!"
Boy moves, and Girl slides out from under the covers. She is dressed in a long t-shirt (we assume one of his) and nothing else. Long, tan legs stick out from the hem of the shirt. She rubs her eyes, yawns.
Boy: "You look like shit, you know"
Girl: "No thanks to you. How can you get up this early in the morning and still look sexy?"
Boy: "It's a gift."
Girl: "Where are the towels? I need a shower"
Without waiting for a response, she heads to the bathroom, still in a sleepy daze, and he watches her go, with almost interest in his eyes.

somebody the question of reality, what is really the dream, what you see now, or what you return to when you close the eyes you think your using now? or are there theoretically more than just the two eyes we see with, why do we say "i see" when we understand? perhaps sleep is simply the rest we receive to rejuvenate ourselves, or more so, the rest we take in to remind us that we should be as happy if not happier when we are awake, unless our actions prevent us from doing so...but then that's our fault. sleep should be dissapointing, almost half of our 32,000 days of life taken by it, we should almost feel, except that it lets us rest, that it's a waist of time...why not make your life more enjoyable, so that sleep is just that, sleep. 000417

or stand uncomfortably under florescent(sp?) lights, trying to keep everything that i am from spilling out,instead I move around freely in dreams, there is this feeling of warth and acceptance in them, almost like a really close, sincere hug

No Bod - E I haven't had sleep in days. Over eight now; I think I won't ever sleep again. I try as hard as possible but can't sleep for any more than an hour. Reality is difficult to maintain. I have to tell myself when I see something, whether it's real or not. I haven't eaten in three days. I don't know what's wrong with me. It probably has something to do with that girl. She took it all away. Now, my insomnia has taken over my life; strangest thing is that I feel so very awake and in such dire need of sleep all at once. Maybe I'm dying? 010409

uglyduckling my only relief from reality. So tired. Tired of work, tired of people, tired of life. Sometimes I think that none of it matters. Friends, money, work, school. If time is eternal, then what we believe to be random chaos is in fact just another cycle in the nature of the universe, that our simple minds are just too feeble to grasp. So on this principle, I started losing any motivation I had to do anything. What's the point to life then? I can't seem to find one. It reminds me of that song,
"Que sera, sera. Whatever will be, will be... "
Sleep, where I know nothing, realize nothing, am nothing. The oblivion that comes with my sleep. Sometimes I do dream, but dreams are always detached and quickly forgotten when I awake. Perhaps my existence is a dream? Someday I will sleep, and it will be forever, it's the only thing I'm looking forward to, the only thing left for me

In the middle of the night,

but still the stars just sparkle and shine.
Seems like all of the time,
our boat was slowly sinking,
you didn't even seem to mind.

Now all I want to do.... is sleep.
Now all I want to do... is sleep."

Jenna I love sleeping, because like most things in life, it's one of those things you don't appreciate until you don't have it anymore. I can only really rest in day. Night is full of worry, staring at my ceiling. Wondering:

When will I get that assignment done?
When am I going to be able to pay them?
When if ever will I be kissed?
Am I wasting precious youth away?

...and so many more questions rage through my head until I get up and come over here and write to you. Then I lie back down, and stare until dawn, when sleep comes too easy...

piercedjenny its funny. i used to go to sleep and be angry that I fell asleep and missed something.
I then got to the point I was only sleeping 3-4 hours a night, and less than that when I was taking E or any of the other drugs I tried and swore I wasn't addicted to.
I'm clean now, more fucked up than ever before, and have slept about a half hour in 11 days.
now that i've been up all this time I can tell you -- you don't miss much when you sleep, except for all the voices in your head, and the fucked up things you don't need to know about.

bird (hes mad i tell you - - - MAD!) so relieved to finally fall asleep last night and get a whole five and a half hours

i tried to drink myself to sleep saturday night and only succeeded at making an asshole of myself, the end result of which only caused me to lose more sleep

all in all, i managed to get by on six hours total sleep in a span of five days

i could hear the alley cats running across my roof in the night and my neighbors doves and pigeons in their roost

staring at the ceiling long enough, i think, can and will likely cause insanity

lycanthrope The covers twisted involuntarily around my legs, leaving a strange sensation, a
vagueness, an inability to tell which layer of what i was touching. It felt cool, almost as
cool as the air, and i pumped my legs furiously as if on an invisible bicycle to become
warm. I've never done'anything creative wnile doing this, i've never imagined winning
"the tour de france, or riding naked across a boardwalk and eating cotton candy on the
first bike ever invented. As a matter of fact, or remembrance rather, the expression on
my face while i do this is most likely quite...well devoid of expression, humorously
devoid in contrast to my furiously pumping legs. One part of my body so commited,
ludicrously involved, and "the other so detached not even interested enough to watch.
Finally the warmth starts to come and now i make small cooing noises, instinctual
snuggle markers. To let everything_and anything in earshot know, that here lies a
comfortable person, here is a person who is willing to face anything, so long as it does
not disrupt his accelerating drowse into sleep. I am on my side, facing the wall, in a
neo fetal position, my legs are under their own weight, my knees pressing against
each other, a painful allignment of the hips, but i am too tired to move. I wait for the
ache to chase me into sleep, but it pulls on my mind like a pair of pliars, like a leash. I
start to turn slowly, the covers and sheets enwrap themselves tightly, slip off into
freezing nothing, I turn back. In one swift motion, i fling myself into the air using only
the muscles of my back and buttocks, and i turn, the covers are barely displaced. I
start falling asleep again. The world around me becomes darker and darker, the
material world, which is normally...well what is it? is it dead? which surrounds my bed,
becomes more and more alive. Even the bed is now a generous and lavish womb.
The surest comfort I've ever known is offered to me not by a poet, or the dalai lama, not
by a friend (maybe a special friend though) or a nephew or an adorable kitten who knows just when to jump onto my lap and purr, but by a weighted box, filled with_springs, a cold iron structure-which clangs like music-when you strike it, those bars at the head which when i was young used to compose music on deep into every Saturday morning while pretending i was still asleep, that i didn't hear them call for breakfast, forcing them to come in and find me there languidly stroking my bed's round alligned cool beams likes a lyre. And indeed nothing now can comfort me like it, with its thick cover made of indeterminable materials, composed to an uncurious mind like mine, of sleep itself. My foot beats the rest of me to sleep, is reviled by the body for its capitalistic
forgetful ness. Doesn't it know the envoirment we are in right now will not reward its
impertinence, this Utopia of my smell, and my colors, this invention beyond invention. I
bang my leg against the bed...the sheets respond with a wrinkling, and the mattress
gives a thudding springing, a sinking into and a launching out. It's the things we sink
into the most deeply that launch us out the most starkly. Like a bed for instance. In
another room, a clock sounds twelve distant chimes. Time is motion, each clanging
and motion is sound. And I'm already thinking of tomorrow morning, of having to wake
up early, of having to go to school. It's definetly taking away from the solemn
compassion this moment offers anyways. I've already moved past it in my mind right
now, past this slow warm circling atrophy to tomorrow, to the next day, to whole weeks,
the prospect of waking up and brushing the teeth and making the bed over and over
again. If only you could do them all once. And the thought of tomorrow being a day of
waiting for sleep, of not having had enough. They always say that tomorrow is the first
day of the rest of your life, but what happens if you didn't get enough sleep the night
before? Sleep owns philosophy, it squashes ubermunchen and leviathans, and shushes them like an impertinent child who wants to stay up past their bedtime, sings them a lullaby of drifting lights and swirling universe, a song of a dark and endless sky inside and out. And i am all for it. I'm the type of person who needs at least 10 hours a day....and another 6 at night. And then, something actually happens. All of this thinking, fretting has activated a part of me i had saught respit from, had woke a tyrant. A vain Napoleon who write treaties against sleep, when he's well rested of course. Suddenly lines of what could only be poetry are in my mind, reactions to various queries and sights during the day, love letters from myself. And i must get up, turn on the lights to write them down. No surely, they are just the lines that seem at the time to have finally captured it, but they'll just be another unneccessary letdown that does in no way in its words create an image of the world that almost makes themselves seem superflous. It will not do that, it will not create an unspoken matrix of subtext with economic efficiency. No, it will look like somebody racking their brains to complete an assignment, or someone being forced to remember something for an interview. It will not be a testament, an alter to humanity, to nature itself, it will be a reminder of some distance, some isolation from ourselves, from each other, a uselessness, not a connection. Yet, i cannot resist, there is a force in me unhappy with sleep, with food, unhappy with the prospect of children. It wants to make other people's children happy. It wants them to feed off the bags under my eyes like ignorantly blissful vultures. I want to help other people in between eating and sleeping. A foolish byproduct forces me into the bright light of an artificial morning. Leaves my dilated eyes tired and assaulted and at the mercy of another blank page. Another late night alarm clock ringing and ringing like my pulse.

to this tired body now

there are some things i'll live without
but i want you to know
that i need you right now
i need you tonight


i steal a kiss
from her sleeping shadow moves
cause i'll always miss
(her )
wherever she goes
and i'll always need her more than she could ever need me
i need someone
to ease my mind
but sometimes a someone
is so hard
to find
and i'll do anything
to keep her here tonite
and i'll say anything
to make her feel alright
and i'll be anything
to keep her here tonite
cause i want you to stay,
with me

i need you tonite

she comes to me
like an angel out of time
as i play the part
of a saint
on my knees

there are some things i'll live without
but i want you to know
that i need you
right now

suffer my desire for you

poeticmisfit Sleep forever,
but be awake to die,
close your eyes,
so you can't cry.
Live in your dream,
become the unreal,
the fantasy of mind,
where you can not feel.
Nothing to think,
life will betray,
as the dream goes on,
through night and day.
THoughts will fall,
innocence in death,
evil can lurk,
with your every deep breath.
But you can't feel,
you can't hear,
how can you be scared?
when you can't be there to fear?
Runaway to your mind,
sainty you don't have to keep,
but the first thing has to be
to try and get to sleep...

Sailor Jupiter I love falling asleep in his arms
Snuggled under his dark green comforter and blue patchwork quilt
Our faces touching
I can feel him breathing
Feel his heart beating
I feel safe
All my problems are melted away
I wake up to him moving
I crawl over and look at the clock
How long did we sleep
I fall back to sleep
I think his bed is too big to sleep in alone

Perspective_Of_Soul Before i sleep, there is my place.

Somewhere between my slumber and awakened thought resides a world of utter enchantment.Rolling hills with mist creating dew drops on the blades of grass that are soft under my feet.A large home that has within it, paintings in oils by the unseen, unheard artists that create for their own amusement.A library filled with books of memories, photos of times i thought lost, covered by the dusts of life progression.There are empty books there as well.Awaiting new experiences, new writings, new poetry written by the soul's flowing inks.

Outside the home is a hill with a hall at the top decorated with marble and flowing drapes.Abstract images carved with a golden knife, etched into the fragile yet solid bounderies of the large walls.I find some peace in hearing my feet click on the white marble floor, an audible reminder that i am there.

Outside are the fountains.One on each side of the pathway spraying into each other with large cascading arcs.Two female statues carved from granite stand in the center, one in each flowing display.One fountain contains sweet water, while the other contains sour.The constant circulation of fluid exchanges evens things out somewhat but i can often hear the ladies bickering as i pass by.
Another fountain just beyond it.A large circle of water with a pillar in the centre, rising high.Ontop is a statue of Cupid, the Greek God of Love, bow in hand.Standing in the water below is Psyche, radiantly beautiful she reaches up to him pledging her loyalty and love.

Psyche exists there as a monument, but she exists here in this world in the flesh also.Often she is to be seen wandering the hills, her beauty glowing like a soft white hot ember that pierces the night and warms my heart.When she speaks angels sing and her words speak more truth than i could come close to understanding.
There is a man here also.His name is unknown to me and that seems fine with both of us.His eyes present within them a wisdom and a knowledge i feel i shall never attain.I find us talking about lots of things but often it is the teaching i find most enjoyable.His genteel nature expressed thoughts i did not have before.
Things i never would know about myself are spoken here and for some reason, they are not as bad as they are when i am awake.

I cannot spend as much time here as i like for sleep beckons me with a crooked finger, but i would like to.
I feel that nothing can come closer to heaven on earth than my very dreams and joys placed before me in a personal display.

sylphide I simply can't sleep for these are the thoughts i keep because of you. My mind is racing like the drub and bass of a squarepusher.. sombre melories repeat over and over like acid that just keeps coming back.. and the erratic beats of my heart flutter in time without ever a sense of ceasing until it's due bar.
And up until now, every song has been about you. Andy Clockwise makes me cringe and say it's a typical chiche to my thoughts of you but it's ture. I can't get you out my mind and this is all i can write. The songs i hear, the tune of everyone's soul keep trying to compete with mine. And i can't justiy me. I can't find the lrics, the rhyme or the reason to write about you. I'm stuck . I'm blocked in this universe of happiness.. without a way to release you without a way to reembrace what once was my only avenue. And all i can do is see my life crumbling beofre me. In this sincere, or seemingly sincere manic of mine.
This room is eeriely dark and i'm scared of what i can't see. But it had to go up to come down. The elevator of my mind. Who has ever said that i have to go up to down to come up? Who has ever given me the time of day to move me the way i want to move them? To run their fingers through my insides and flutter my veins and my heart srtings like a harp would. To the soul of it's musician ever seeking to find fuidity in moving from one string to another, in these subtle progresions of my mind.

I say i hear the songs i hear, keep trying to compete with mine,
the tune of everyone else's soul, through these manic voices in my mind

I know you're sleeping but i'm awake, and awake feels like longing fades desire.
But never mind, i'll deal with this for awhile.

And when i breathe i believe that you're awake and you can see
that there's no better sound to sleep to. No better sound to fall asleep to.

Do you love this dream I'm living? Did you hear my heart transpose?
Submit myself to slessor's sleep, savour the lave of sleept-swept prose.

Do you give yourself to me utterly, Body and no-body, flesh and no-flesh,
Not as a fugitive, blindly or bitterly, But as a child might, with no other wish.
And when i breathe i believe that you're awake and you can see
that there's no better sound to sleep to. No better sound to fall asleep to.

Can we deviate for just a minute?
Can i remind you that i love the way you moan for more?
Can we have a moments silence?
While I sumpuously taste every breath you breathe once more?
This is nothing like heaven, this is no where close
i think i've found myself in you.

nick What the hell made him decide to get up with only two hours of sleep!

It was a great party the night before, but this morning, when I had to roll out to be sure my guest was well entertained, I was hoping that I would just go unconcious or die or something...

If only I could not move for about two more hours.

So now he's said his goodbyes, and started the long drive to Kansas City.

I was sorry to see him go. . .

His visits are always so much fun.


As he pulled out of the driveway, I went inside to get a shower, and, twenty minutes later, I am at work.


Coffee is making my stomach turn sour.

Little aches are holding me in my chair and fatigue is pulling on my eyelids.

All I have to is watch...
be quiet and watch...

Nobody has any questions tonight.

Just hang in there, and when I get home...
well...
I'm sure I'll be up for another long day.



Maybe if I had real insomnia I wouldn't want to sleep so bad.


Can't stop now though

dudeinanigloo My sleep patterns change a lot during the week. On Monday to Friday, I get up at about 7:10 AM, and on Saturday and Sunday, I get up at about 12 PM. I go to sleep at 10-11 PM during the week, and it changes to 1-3 PM on weekends. So, I have to adjust between patterns every Sunday. That means I'm not tired when I go to bed, and I end up getting about 6 hours of sleep.

I hate school. Or at least the getting up early part. I do enjoy my options, but most of the cores SUCK ASS.

josie I write by the sound of your sleeping hour.
A Silence. Filled by nothingness, filled by everything.

Itís a precious kind of Sleep, timely & real.
So much so, that I fear you could easily wake to the sound of life & itís solipsistic song.

But in your silent slumber, Sleep, in His grace does not deduce you to a name, a face nor a voice, & as a child might, you give yourself to Him utterly.
Body & no body. Flesh & no flesh.

Although in Sleep we are unknowing of ourselves, we become ourselves. Blissfully unaware of lifeís precious song, or of the lyrics we seemingly need be governed by. In Sleep we are the music makers, in Sleep we are the dreamers of dreams.

Yet strangely enough, I see that Sleep dares not remember the self in the conscious realm. A realm where He is worshipped as the pinnacle of the dead day.

But the day is not dead.
The day is here. Now. In this moment.
We are that which we are not. We are the Self.

Do you hear the song of life to which the waking sleepers dance to so delicately? With such sickening ethereality?
A myriad of morose boys whose concepts of life are evidenced by that which They are. That which They know, They see, & They hear.

The dance of the dead man, divided by the boy.
Being awake has become Idolatry. Commercial. Futile.

But the day is not dead.
The day is here. Now.
Being that which we are not. We are the Self.

And if you hold still for just one moment, youíll hear the sound that resounds between your fingertips.
And for that moment Silence finally is tangible & triumphant.

iNsEcUrE_GoTh_GiRl this is the reason why i'm sat here typing at a quarter to eight on a sunday morning, the once chance i have of a lie in before the drudgery of the week starts again.

but because i've been relying on a more artificial way of sleep.......

i just can't do it any more.
i can't sleep!
i've forgotten how.

so last night and the night before i decided to try sleeping normally, naturally.
it sure as fuck isn't working.

and now i'm sat here avoiding revision and being tired. and not being able to sleep.
so i'm going to text my early rising friend to talk.
or not, even she might not be up.

so for the next week of exams i'll be continuously drugged for the whole day.
sleeping pills for night, caffeine pills for day.

and that's not even half of the list of pretty medication that i'll have to take.


please feed me pills.

My coffee pot broke three days ago.
and I finished eating the last of my beans two days ago.
I have an addictive personality.
Money...
The wood in my house is too old to be safe. There is no running your hands down these ancient banasters, no walking about barefoot.
Taking your shoes off provides a feeling of safety and security... but these are things I am no longer afforded.
I tried a while ago to redo the exterior... I figured if I came home each day to a castle on the outside I would want to restore the condemnable interior.
See, I've never been one to ask for help or charity from anyone... and restoring a house this large is far to big a job for one man.
So each day I rake the leaves and mow the lawn. I would love to lay on my couch after working so hard, but instead I have to sit as there is a spring sticking up through the cushion on one side.
My mattress has no sheets.
Basically my house is naked from the inside out, bare and unhealthy.
The outside is prestine though, in this suburban society it would be simply unacceptable to show signs of anything less than poignant acclimation.

pobodys nerfect Sleep?! What the hell is that?!?
When i was about 5 or so, my parents used to shut me in their room (while they watched tv in the living room) so i would bore myself to sleep. I'd sometimes count to occupy the time, and i could--with some help--count to over a hundred. Pretty impressive for that age (but a big reflection of my insomnia even back then). These days, i just stay awake on the computer until 2 AM (or alternately, whenever i'm bored and can't think of anything else to do). Unless i'm sick, there's no point in even trying to go to bed at a "normal" time like 11, because sure as anything, i'll just wake up at some obscure hour like 4 AM.
If i can still wake up when i need to (and more often than not feel more rested than when i get the extra sleep) then why fight with something that's been a part of my nature for 29 years?

In_Bloom I love sleep when it comes but life is so exciting for me at times

The man cradles me, strokes my hair, kisses my forehead and smiles as I open my eyes...

He tilts his head back and whispers to the air, "ahh, she which does not sleep..."
