Sleepless...

It's the darkness again.
the silence..
the clock ticking...
silence...
tick...
silence...
tick...
silence..
the street sounds....
the pictures...old and new....
the thoughts...good and bad....
scattered and empty.
the conversations....replay and replay...
the unfinished tasks...
the unpaid bills...
my home...
work...
the future...
the tension.
the breathes on the pillow...
the frustration grows.
the anxiety soars.
A small beep. It's 3 am.
Another sleepless night.
I firmly shut my eyes.

hashem, sleeping pills

hashem said...

Thanx Mirvat...but no...no sleeping pills....
Less coffee, better understanding of what I'm doing, and why, and a better understanding of how to fit, would help....(I wish...!)

Could be Lebanon, could be anxiety (I experienced this before my trip), could be something missing in one's life...
As for sleeping aids, I personally vote for scotsh whisky or Nyquill ;) I do however like your point of view, Hashem. I hope you will find the answers to whatever is keeping you awake :)
