You Awake Too?

How many of us are kept up at night by the the nightmares of the past?
It’s 4am and I’ve not been drinking, but I’m burning up real fast!

The voices woke me up, screaming in my head.
There is a sweat induced figure of a woman, where I lay in bed.

Now I can’t go back to sleep, so I’ll sob, I’ll weep, I’ll cry.
Panic sets in deep with me. I can’t get out, as much as I try.

The terrors ensure to bestow on me frequent insomnia.
Yet, I fight it, so it doesnt become some sort of mania!

  1. Whenever that happens to me, I simply go out and probably to a busy place where people are. I try to tire myself by either walking or trying to help homeless people so much that by the time I am done, I’m sleepy as hell and am almost sleep-walking back to my home.

      1. Sorry to hear about your phobia. I hope your loved ones around you are supportive of you during such difficult phase. If you have written anything on this topic, I’d love to read more about you.

      2. Oh my…. really? Then you are a fighter and a winner if you have survived it and close to recovery. How lucky I feel having met such a brave soul like yourself, I can’t describe. I truly feel honored… btw what name should I call you? if you don’t mind me asking πŸ™‚

      3. H. πŸ™‚ I had a co-worker in my office whose name was Frank but when I asked him his name, he said call me F. You’d be the second human on this planet Earth that I’d call with an alphabet. Btw, H stands for happy, high and Hugs … doesn’t it? πŸ™‚


      4. I have spent a lot of time in positive thinking, hence I usually see the other side of the coin. Whatever makes you feel horrified and hurt, I’d want to know so that I can offer my own (positive) view about such things.

      5. You like darker things because happiness has not touched your soul yet from any person. I think positive people and activities can change what you like.


      6. That’s a good thing. Actually I read somewhere that being happy all the time is not normal. So is being sad. I think it depends on our unique personality and the way we have learned to cope with things since childhood.
