i lie awake,

unable to sleep.

can’t breathe.

can’t silence my mind.

i am unable to flick the disconnect switch,


i lie still –

wishing for my thoughts to die.

    I know the feeling… Hope you’ll be able to have peaceful nights full of sleep very soon!

    Wishing you the blessings of peace and hope… I am concerned about you based on your last few posts; can I help?

    You did a good job of capturing the feeling of sleeplessness. If only that disconnect switch were easier to turn off….

    I close my eyes and imagine clouds blocking the blackness of the night sky from my vision. With each thought I push it away like a cloud, consciously moving it out of mind … eventually I either see just blackness or fall asleep trying to keep the clouds from floating back into view.
    Sometimes works, sometimes doesn’t. There are no stars in the sky I am striving for, just a nothingness (blackness) so I can move into slumber.
    Doesn’t always work … anyway … for what it’s worth 😉

    Take Care
