lion how do you sleep, my darling
sometimes not at all?
are we sleeping in the same way
when from heaven shadows fall
how do you sleep, my love
when the heart has ears for silent tears
dreaming in the daylight hours
sleepwalking with your fears
sleeping more or less than never
not at all
deb i tried to sleep,
i did,
but i kept turning,
hearing music in the backround
wanting to sing along

the phone rang and the bubble popped
and now i sit at the keyboard
at 7:42
barely awake
and i wonder if i'll ever really sleep again

soon i'll curl up on the couch
and close my heavy eyes
and smile
as i drift away to somewhere
ive never seen before~
::yawns:: nite. or morning, as it were
setsuna meiou I fear that this wonderful thing I have been given is only a dream, and soon I may wake up to face cruel reality.

but, I pray, that the gods will have favour on me, and they will let me sleep forever
wesleann it's those night where you would fall asleep, but lay in bed thinking about shit like "How come so many hairs fall out of my head every day, and i never go bald?" 000124
Brad could it lead to schizophrenia? Sleep deprivation has effects remarkably similar for your creative mind as those of intoxication. 000319
vega After something like 72 hours of sleep deprivation, the brain produces a chemical whose base is vaguely similar to LSD(so I have been told), but by this point aren't you already fucked up enough ? 000320

psycho insomniac so why am i so damn depressed, you say. depressed indeed. sleep is a good thing. cherish every second of bed time. and when you close your eyes, thank god for letting you sleep, instead of lying there hour after hour leaving you with your thoughts and you own fucking twisted mind... because everything will be okay for you. you will wake up to a morning and feel refreshed. you sleep when your tierd. i sleep once a week. and between those few hours, i'm so fucking depressed because reality feels like a damn nightmare. and i cant hide from it. because i know the nightmare is my reality. hmmm... 000904

guitar_freak unless you want MY medication, weed is the only cure 001013
Barrett Cure:
2 1/2 oz. Jack Daniels
Short glass of ice
Warm can of Budweiser(optional*)
Pour the Jack Daniels over the ice.
Sip slowly (it tastes better the more dilluted it gets)
Follow with beer*
When finished, close eyes.
psychobabe tried it, and it works like a charm, thanks barrett!
My cure is just get a bud, go out at 2 or 3 in the morning, and cruise/walk around fucking town all night, or go to a party and get wasted......
Thats my cure
SCOTT hey next time let me know

i am a raging insomniac-even booze does not help-i am a go-go-go

gotta go-gotta go-gotta go

deb i can never sleep anymore
i sit awake until
early morning
staring blankly
at the phone
wondering why
it never rang all night-
silly me, he's in bed-
i stopped caring about
my sleeping habits
long ago
when i realized i didn't have
good ones
and now, when i need
some rest
any rest
i can't even coax myself
to bed-

i think this is it:
i'm afraid of waking up
and having all of this
be a dream
god i'd better go to sleep tonight 010115
monadh I should be sleeping
but like the nut that I am .. I rarely go to sleep at night ..
and so ... here it is .. freshly morning
and I am still wide awake
but know that I should go
and catch some Z's before my eyes fall out from sheer lack of common-sense
nocturnal second FUCKING night in a row. it's after 5am, I've been lying in bed since about 3:30 and nothin. this is insane. what the hell am I supposed to do with myself? insomnia sucks more than anything in the world. 010413
melvinwang i have a friend who can't sleep because of overactive bladder.

i never sleep anyway, so i know this type of thing. my reason for not sleeping is either boredom or depression

Pink Paint hay UPers,
do we have a fight club crew or what,
me knows what ya mean,
most certainly abad idea though,
fun but kindo risky,
c i've just come through the urr..
no sleeps fun stage,
and you turn into a freak,
its an experience ,
butt just watch it,
things get pretty risky out there.
just remember to eat and drink enough,
then sleep deprevation isn't such a problem if you are incontrol of it.
Fight me for it,
come on,
i'm tellin ya,
it's a great soap box,
you slip up,
go through rough patch,
then if ya lucky you'll come out of it one tough happy go lucky cookie.

kerry i've had it since i was little. always. it comes in waves. i beg my mom for the sleeping pills but she won't let me have them. i never take the full dosage... too scared of never waking up. one day i'll sneak into her room and steal the bottle.
and sometime i'll get out of bed and write songs and books and maybe they'll be even better than the ones i wrote when i wasn't trying to sleep.
cole it always facinates me how the gnawing pain eating away at the pit of your stomache due to feeling sad as fuck can keep you awake. who the hell needs vivarin? 020113
kelli crane i love xanax. i have a problem sleeping. i think too much about stupid shit. I'm out of xanax, so i'll go take a tylenol pm. i've been blathering for hours now. it's 5:20 in the morning. if i have to watch the sun come up i'll die.

Jenna Dammit. It will not claim me again.

broken_down girl I come here to attempt to blathe my insomnia away (3 hours staring at my ceiling in the dark)... only to find that I was the last one here, trying to... blathe my insomnia away.

It's just been getting progressively worse. Enough to really bother me. I used to wear the fact that I could stay awake until dawn like a badge of honor. Booze or none, I cannot seem to sleep before 6 am lately. Lord knows I've tried and I've tried.

I can't get any strong sleeping pills to correct this. For one I would have to go to the doctor, who probably wouldn't give them to me anyway; and for another, one bad night and I'll take the whole bottle and never wake up. {see sleeping_pills}

So I sit up writing, writing to no one and everyone, truly on the verge of tears, trying to sort out what the fuck is wrong with me.

I have finals, yes. And I will be moving back to my parents soon, an unhappy place where people hate each other.

But that's not what I have been thinking about. My mind is simply active, awake, refusing to think slow easy thoughts but rather play out my future, both good and bad versions of it in my head. I see myself getting drunk so I can finally talk to that guy. I see myself making mistakes with a completely different guy for all the wrong reasons. I see myself partying with friends this summer and being happy. I see myself sitting at home alone.

When I spoke to him this evening, he told me he had spent most of Monday evening talking to her. "I think she likes me but she's dating Chris." And I prayed silently that they would never happen. She's a wonderful girl but uses and discards men unknowingly; she would hurt my best friend.

But my most prevalent thought was,

"Oh god. Please don't let her steal him from me."

I find myself as a jealous girlfriend even though we are not romantically involved at all. Am I wrong for that? If he has her, will he still want me around?

I need him. He is my support and guide and brother.

There is a storm coming on. Perhaps it will lull me to sleep. It's 6 am.

Toxic_Kisses I'm tired and yet I can't sleep, and to be honest I really oughtent be blathing when I'm tired kuz thats when I make the most mistakes and say things I really shouldent of said @ all *Sigh* but I have no other place to be and theirs nothing on TV

I wish 24 were here
.blekk.tchynah.dol. all the while its 2am and im wishing to be away in the world where nothing is real and im not hurt by you. i wish i could sleep. its been more than two months now since my sleep has been normal. youve hurt me. and my sleep has disappeared. ... i think it ran away from me.. did you steal my sleep baby? 020519
CRO Insomnia is good.
You get to blathe and read what people's hopes and dreams are, and then you get to see them not get fulfilled.

It's like watching somebody bleed to death on a street corner.

nanny is it still considered insomnia if you work midnight shift, and get paid for your time that you are awake performing a service or what not, and you sleep perfectly 8 hours a day, but they are not at night but during the day.. are you still an insomniac? 020520
squint no you are not an insomniac.


my darlings eyes don't close for me
and he stays awake
when the sky turns
from black to the orangey hues of a tired morning,
he thinks about
that i cannot fill
in his minimalist's life.
I know the drooping of those heavy lids
are just who he is nowadays
and oh to be refreshed
must be the world to him.
I wish that all those things
hovering just beyond
that void of his
could make it all go away
and so he'll sleep
when the sky fades black to gray.
I could look at his eyes
and see the sheets
of his skin
tucking away sore days.
I could kiss his lids
and fall asleep
to the gentle rhythym of his breathing...
but insomnia holds him upright for now
and stores the better days
in the future we pretend to know,
I dream of him awake
as he gazes at the sunrise
through our window.
poetic_onslaught has its advantages. ive had it for years until recently. i dont have much on my mind no more and that sucks. i used to come up with some very insightful thoughts. sometimes when you think, instead of thinking it, you see it in pictures. they just pop up in front of you like a t.v. image. you can hear words as clearly as if they were being spoken right beside your ear, literally. or maybe all that was from something else wrong with my ok i got a question im just gonna ask since i dont know anyone from here anyway. can insomnia lead to skitzophrenia? i havent read anything connecting them, but then again there is still a lot that doctors dont know about skitzo's. anyone here know? 020520
poetic_onslaught ok nevermind that question. insomnia obviously has to fuck with you mind state. i just haven't seen it in writing. 020520
Full_Circle_to_Comatose at first i thought it was the drugs. so i put aside the white oblivion for a week, but still no sleep. so i reverted back to the tylenol pm's. anywhere from 4 to 12 a night just to rest. last wednesday became thursday, and i just decided to see thursday through. around 4 am thurs. i finally fell into a light drowse. friday became saturday with no sleep once again. i drank a half a bottle of crown royal, but still nothing. and saturday night i felt like i had slept. i feel quite sure i could've kept going for another three or four days. instead i downed more pm's and three or four hours later, i slept. it makes me angry, it makes me cry. i want to kill someone...i'm sure i would if it would give me a good night's rest. i feel like it's making me insane. i wish i had medical coverage, or a job. i'd get some real medicine, and maybe just take them all. a permanent end to this hell. i'm not so dissatisfied with my life to want to end it, but no sleep is making me a crazy person. i never understood the seriousness of insomnia until i suffered from it. it is actually Painful. fucking doctors would probably just tell me i need healthy natural sleep. maybe they'd tell me to chew some Valerian root or some shit. 020520

Ray Bradbury....some author, he said something about 3 AM being the time of the dead...that bridge between light and dark, night and day, death and life... the point when the opposites of each extreme transcend each other's boundaries and just mesh together in this twilighty's crazy thinking about it. Sleeping is wonderful, but you miss out on the really good stuff. not's like you get more out of live a little bit longer than everyone else that's asleep. you see more, you feel more, you experience more, you learn more. goodnight ;-)

minnesota_chris I couldn't sleep last night. Must have been the nap I had, plus all the chocolate truffle fixings I was eating last night.

So I woke up at 3:30 or so, played some guitar (Beatles) and worked on my paper (due Wed).

I developed this theory when I noticed most people begin sleeping fitfully around their mid twenties or age 30 or so. I think this is because humans have needed people to stay awake and fight the lions. And once people have been in their child bearing years for a few years (and presumably have had their children, if they are going to have them), they become much more expendable, and become the ones who stay awake at night.

I've noticed that my thoughts are always worries when I wake up in the middle of the night. And I feel, like dreams, the actual subject of the worry is not the important thing, but what it represents:

People 30 and over are just programmed to wake up worrying in the middle of the night, to keep the tribe's children from getting eaten!
x I've been sleeping badly my whole life. What's the reason for that? 021209
minnesota_chris I dunno. I think (if you believe in God), we were all made a little bit different, to insure the survivability of the whole... some sleep heavy, some sleep light. 021209

Bizzar Im exhausted
eyes are heavy and falling shut,
but I just cant seem to sleep.
The warmth you leave,
your words so deep,
Things that Ill forever keep.

Staring at the ceiling
eyes fall to the walls.
Close them to see you there.
The glow of your smile,
the heaviness of your stare,
all the things you do to show you care.

Head heavy on my pillow,
eyes filled with tears.
Set them free as thoughts of you go by.
You can see in my soul,
all the truth bearing lies,
but still in your arms I can fly.

antayla You all should work swing shift. I bet it would fix some of your insomnia problem. I love working swing shift... but I can't sleep this night.

I have RSI (repetetive strain injury) and sometimes that gives me insomnia... but now I have insomnia because someone who used to love me doesn't care anymore... seems like a recurring theme to sleeplessness.

I wish I could get out of the city when I can't sleep... there is something about the overbearing presence of so much stuff out there that keeps me awake, unless it rains... then I hear the rain and forget the feeling of too many people. I grew up in the sticks, I don't really belong in the city...

Vanessa The clock that’s telling me it’s time to sleep
Dies by my eyelids that cease to fall chronologically
Cus you’re all I see when I dream
Voices pounding like nails inside my head
Dragging me heartlessly so far away
You’re giving a bleeding heart tugging so endlessly
Let go of me
Cus you’re killing me, inside to out
Why do you have to keep me awake?
It’s not like I can dream without seeing your face
Cus I’m questioning your every move
And pondering that every turn
Such fraility that keeps me so hungry
But what would I gain?
But you starved me for this dawning day
Waking me to pray
For the morning I would wake
Facing that my burning hell was just this dream
Those fires that burned the doors of love for me
That just slammed on my heart for eternity
But your return blazes even more than before
The insomnia’s killing me, with daggers in my eyes
Blinding apathy
Cus now I can’t even dream of you loving me

Death of a Rose After the bath
you lay on the bed
exposing layers
of beautiful washed skin
we both stared at in surprise;
long strands of hair, shiny and damp
under the yellow sunlight,
fell over your shoulders:
they made two exclamation marks
with your stiffened nipples.

And gently you fell asleep
at my side;
while I, my sweet, stayed awake
all night
who had your uncovered beauty
to think about,
your nipples troubling me
in the night
like two mysterious asterisks.

NeverLeavingWellEnoughAlone Sleep deprivation has become a necessity now that I realize that it takes that long for me to understand what I'm saying. How easy it was for me to express myself when I went days without sleep. It must have been because I had that long to think about it. If I don't give myself time now I can never really say what I'm trying to say because I only have remnants of the things I once thought and I need time to restore them again. Thats's just one of my experiences with insomnia....I don't know if you can relate. 041017

full_circle_to_comatose at night there is no refuge from my thoughts. i have no one to distract me, and the infomercials drone on and on. buy the gazelle, get botox, try cortisal, penile enhancement, sexual stimulants, call this 900 number, hook up with singles in your area, get fit, get smart, cure insomnia (HA!), and blah blah blah. the daylight brings resolution of problems, or so it seems. you think your choices or your memories could not possibly haunt you again not for another night, impossible, it has to be over. the night comes and it starts again, full circle to insanity, pain, indecision. i dose myself with sleeping pills but they never work, and if they do my nightmares are worse than being awake. my nightmares only show me the dark places i have come from and thought i left behind. i've been wandering every day towards the sun, but it seems sometimes like i get no closer to my destination. it all starts to seem futile,something akin to jogging in place. same pace, same scenery. when can i stop spinning my wheels in this rutted road and let my tires run over some smoothly paved highway? i just want to see the sign saying "now leaving Dementia, 39 miles to Ascension. i just want to drive home, leave this purgatory behind me. but i wish i knew how long the ride was. wish i knew if it was even possible to get back to where i started. i wonder if i wear my tires enough could i burn out the scars, or fade the memories. is there a cure for me, or for this apathy? i see a new life on the other side of this abyss, but the bridge to cross it is too slow being built. i wonder if i'll ever see the other side of this endless night. 050423

flexible I only smoke weed when I need to,
And I need to get some rest,
I confess, I burnt a hole in the mattress,
Yes, yes, it was me, I plead guilty,
And on the count of three I pull back the duvet,
Make my way to the re-fri-gerator,
One dry potato inside, no lie
Not even bread, jam,
When the light above my head went bam!
I can't sleep, something's all over me,
Greasy, insomnia please release me,
And let me dream about making mad love on the heath,
Tearing off tights with my teeth.
But there's no relief,
I'm wide awake in my kitchen,
It's dark and I'm lonely,
Oh, if I could only get some sleep,
Creaky noises make my skin creep,
I need to get some sleep,
I can't get no sleep...

i fell asleep early and then woke up like i normally do. usually i just roll over and fall back to sleep rather quickly. but right after i checked the time, my brother texted me. so we texted back in forth for awhile. i am still up two hours later thinking about my taxes and cleaning up my apartment.

my insomnia has been coming back to haunt me lately. i don't get it. it is one of the least stressful times of my whole life. i should have no problem falling asleep. trouble is my stupid brain never shuts off, even when i'm sleeping.

reminding me of the scene at the end of a clockwork orange when alex is being brainwashed
i have no need for a night light
due to all the little lights in the room:
the blue one on the external hard drive
the green one on the monitor
and the two red ones on the power strips
like the rats at the end of pirates of the caribbean (anaheim, not orlando)

i wonder what we'll do tomorrow?
i wonder when the melatonin will kick in?
i wonder many things i don't even want to get into because i feel like a little bitch for even thinking them
get over it! pull yourself together! stop whining!
mahayana it only takes the slightest noise these days to wake me up. and then i am up for good. i now find myself sleeping in small bursts of 2 hours here and there. if im lucky.

[its been over 3 weeks now since i have been the recipient of decent sleep]

im starting to lose fragments of myself here and there. but i hardly notice these days.
Caroline 452 Not sure when I woke up today, because i turned my phone off, but it's it was dark then, and it's light now. 090301
Caroline 452 Hey! Girlfriends neighbor? Can't you hear your fucking cat howling? I certainly can! Let the bastard in! He / she's cold and hungry! 090301
. waiting, waiting, waiting for something to happen.

insomnia is my inability to let go.

Death of a Rose is a let down, it let's you branch out of your own mind, but it drugs you....never letting your own mind become complacent.

A slow bed is the cure, I know, I've done it.

Rest and two weeks and you're sleeping patterns will change.

Insomnia can only be changed within your own will to stop the hurt. don't believe me or believe....

been there, and going three weeks with minimal sleep is fucking painful, the scents are gone, you wander around disbeiliving life is still here. You're head is splitting and all you can ask is when will it end?

Insomnia will hurt and it will be trial but I promise you that it's trial will see you better in the quest of your life.
what's it to you?
