Minds a blur eyes glazed over feeling numb to the world,
Atmospheric changes..I stay in a constant state of burning flesh.
This heat.. a volcano cooking awaiting the eruption.
I wait, I wonder..I wonder how long till freedom, trapped by that intoxicating nighttime potion.
The numbing remedy still in my system, still yearning for that release.
Still yearning I yearn, when will I yearn no more, when will this yearning cease?
Sleepless nights irritated mornings, my moods flutter.
Fluttering between hope and despair.
My mind is like a merry go round, thoughts spinning they do not stop.
I lay awake at night thinking when will this be over, when will I be free
There must be an end..I exhale, there must be..surely.

Reminds me of some of my restless nights lately …
I think my fear of these kind of nights have been what’s fuelled my long term insomnia. It’s horrible
I agree it is horrible. I myself now try to embrace it, for example if I’m having a bad night where my ‘process’ hasn’t worked I write to the point I forget the reason why I’m awake is because I couldn’t sleep..I feel we must try our best not to fear as to give the subject power but we must starve it of all energy.
